Trog Rolls!

April 24th, 2008

Marshall came down to the shop yesterday to help me bleed the brakes and put the wheels on. After sitting for about a month, Trog started right up. As we were backing out of the shop, we noticed some fluid leaking. At first i thought it was some brake fluid from a bleeder port i forgot to close up, but further investigation revealed it was gas. Eeeek! It turns out the previous mechanic who serviced the carburators hooked up new fuel lines, but he forgot to use hose clamps! Tsk tsk tsk. Scary. Do mechanics have liability insurance? Was it the same mechanic that creatively screwdrivered the thermostat? What other shortcuts will I find?

After bleeding the brakes 3-4x, they are still spongy. This is even with a powerbleeder. I think I’m going to take them to a brake shop to be bled properly.
