CV Joints in good shape ??
Didn't get it back yesterday and they don't work weekends. Master cylinder I had didn't fit -- he ordered another and got one EXACTLY like the one I gave him. Supposed to fit '71 to '79 according to Bus Depot -- Not sure what's going on there.
He put the old one back on and is getting no action on the front brakes after multiple bleeds -- rear are showing solid push.
Rear brake shoes I gave him are missing the "ear" for the e-brake actuator. Old rear shoes are in good shape so he's putting those back on. Old front pads looked brand new too. I told them to toss the old pads in the box and put the new ones on anyway.
3 bearing sets complete. Had stopped after getting the left rear done to call me about the rear shoes. Should have the other done by now. Trying to determine what's up with the front brakes not working. I'll go in Monday and help them play with it --- and try to get a part number off the master cylinder that is on there to determine what is is from.
