I got a new brake light switch (sadly it was not an exact fit but I fabricobbled it together) as well. Just last night I installed the new brake MC and connected it to the pedal.

We experimented with drying the charcoal but decided to just let the water evaporate (in progress.) I also cranked the engine a few times, to push some coolant (and oil) around the block. I can't remember the last time I cranked it; it must be at least 3 months (!). Then, we were going to try to sta...
