That’s good. Reminds me of a book I read in high school. It was turned into a movie, but I can’t remember the name, I’ve seen it a dozen times. Frogman is taken by sub to Japan to scout out possible anphibious landing sites maybe.
In the book it discribes his first encounter with a toilet on a WWII sub. open valve 7, close valve 3, open vent B, pull red handle to the up possition close valve 7, push red handle down, Close vent B, close valve 3…something like that.
I remember my first encounter (Early 70s?? Chevy Love) with repairing a hydrolic clutch. The slave cylinder was bad and the price to me seemed way out of line for that little cylinder and I couldn’t believe that they needed a hydrolic clutch in such a little truck. I was in my mid 20s and remembered all those muscle cars that I just had a few years earlier…they never needed hydrolic’s and they had massive clutches compared to this little thing. I told my dad I was going to make some brackets and make my own linkage like all those mopars that I owned. I just though it was the stupidest thing to put hydrolic’s to a peddle that a little kid could push in.
The next morning my dad showed up with a new slave cylinder.
I think I could have made everything ok and he did too, but he said that it would be easy to end up with a peddle that you needed both feet and one foot from the passenger to push in.
