Make sure to prime the master. The FSM is a good read...

When i deleted the damper on my truck, the pedal got a lot stiffer. I had the clutch replaced about 10000 miles ago, and it has a very stout pedal now.

...but that could be "a sign", ok? Watch it and be perceptive to it. If it rears again, you have an idea what will need to be done.

I will renew the circuit, just happy there are no frightening, metallic sounds about. Thanks folks, I'm accustomed to working on much more basic cars than a D21....

they don't get too "much more basic" than an early model D21, unless you mean cars from the pre-Regan era. 3 tons of metal and 225 HP big blocks were never a real turn on for me.

My French is a Little rusty, but I'm pretty sure that "cheveux forgonette" translates (loosely) to "Two Haired Wagon" or "Furry Wagon", depending on where the "deux" goes in the name

Google says "cheveux forgonette" translates to "van horses". YMMV.

deux-cheveux forgonette = two-horse van
