The brakes have some stopping power (finally) once the brake booster push rod was adjusted, the lines bled and some testing with a bit of stop and go on a test drive. Note: get into the habit of doing this before driving others around, using the vehicle for working or before a long driv .
Just so happens that there’s an oil leak at the fuel pump mounting plate. I thought it looked fine when I re-installed it, however. on inspection after a test drive, the gasket appears to not be holding. Next thing to do is take the plate and gasket off – there’s four bolts, I will clean then up the residual gasket material and redo the gasket and remount it. That’ll be done tomorrow.
