Well done Harasco.

The weather turned nice here so I'm looking forward to driving my '66 Toro today. I know you are, too.

What's up with the license plate on the kick panel?

Hi Otto,
I found that place a nice one to keep the Toronados original CA license plate.

Lets make a big leap forward......

I got some disc brake parts from my friend Nico . The less desirable '67 4 piston calipers with knuckles, hubs and ONE rotor.
I will take this as a challenge. First of all a proper set of 4 piston fixed calipers is race technology compared to soccer mum's one piston sliding caliper..;-)
And second I do like challenges. I am convinded that there is a kind of rotor out there that can be machined to fit the '67 hub I've got. I don't care about the large, expensive, old style wheel bearings as I bought a new set last year which will be transferred to the disc brake hubs. That said here are some pics of the setup. I had to build a manual lever oil pump setup to press out the pistons with diesel. Worked like a charm. The bores in the calipers can be restored, the pistons themselves need attention. They're not stainless steel, but chromed mild steel. Either I buy the expensive replacement pistons or I will have mine coated in a suitable, brake fluid resistant, coating. We will see what the costs of both ways are...
