    Well, the starter swap went okay.
    Patched a transmission line last spring and have had the new nicop lines sitting here for about a year. I've had a flatbed sitting at the shop about that long too.
    And now, a brake line decided to surrender to rust.
    One step forward and two back.
    If the dam thing didn't run and drive well, it would have been scrapped by now.
    I'm thinking of changing the thread title to rusty McFord...

    On my Ford's, when I noticed that the trans lines were getting ugly. I got new one from Ford, painted them and put them on the shelf. Did you replace that jumper line that goes between the two cooler fittings on the trans? The front brake lines with flexible joints at the ABS unit. I bought a bunch of them.

    Haven't worked on the new transmission lines. Only to bypass the radiator. Looped the line after the cooler. Still have to finish the new lines.
    In the past, the front brake lines at the ABS were replaced, but may have to be redone. Those flexible brakes lines have been a problem in the past. They colaps inside and the calipers stick.
    Parking brake cable is a disaster.
    This thing really rusted in the past year from sitting.

    I ment the flexible connections at the ABS module. Those rubber flex hoses, yup they like to collapse at there brackets and such.

    I thought you may have been messing with me...doesn't take much.
    Just to keep up with the transmission lines and brake lines, a power steering line surrendered to rust.

    For my 04.I have all the brake lines, rear brakes, all new power steering lines. Only thing I don't have is the time.

    Maybe if you had someone park it on the side of a busy freeway you'd fix it ?
