I will detail these things when finished.

A couple of questions:
1) any issues with moving the hood latch mechanism to accomodate the booster cylinder? Was the sheet metal of the cowl and the grille set up to accomodate this change?
2) any issues with the booster and the underside of your hood? Or do you have a later hood already on there?
I ask because I've got some parts socked away for a friend, but he has a 70, so I'm not sure it will all work on his van without mods.

I'm really looking forward to hearing another review of the improvement, once all done and test driven, and then pads seated in after a few breakin/seat miles.
Also can't wait to hear any summary of the additional details referenced as being left out of the pinned thread.
Neat van too, really dig this van.
Thanks for posting.........

Can you post up the parts that you bought new or repaired and where you got them. This is an important build and someone 2 years from now will be asking and no one will know.
I also have an E300 and Mike showed me his nuts and I loved them right away!
Ok, Mike showed me his parts and I got excited!
Ok, whatever, Mike, can you please post where you got all of the things that you are putting into this build, and the part numbers.
what size socket is that nut? I need to do my brakes and want to do it right.
What is the proper reinstallation of that nut? Is it torque? Placement? What? I can read my book but, you know, this is easier and sometimes the book is different than what really works.
