Yes many a times the rubber brake hose looks fine on the outside but inside deterioration can cause the hose to act as if it has a check valve inside and the brake/hydraulic pressure is not released at that wheel. Change those brakes hoses may never

Be sure to wire some sort of timer into the heater circuit. It would be a shame to watch your ride burn down over a forgotten switch. Anything that gets warm with electricity can also get HOT! Jerry

Make sure to see if any valves are stuck, especially if you do not know why it has been sitting. With the valve cover removed, push down gently with a piece of 2x4 or other gentle tool to make sure they all go down, oil the stems first, no chance of

Pre'68 Dave, Thanks for that info. That looks like a solution, though a little pricey. It may well be worth it for the aggravation of trying to hold everything and three gaskets.
