Pedal box is in place. Brakes are bled, and will likely bleed again. FINALLY got the clutch hard line attached. Actually removed the end of the clutch master, and ran the threads for the line fitting in and out a dozen times. The size and thread were correct, just got it where there was no drag on the part, able to do finger-tight. Then put the end of the master cylinder back on (that is brutal with the spring inside in the tiny space allotted for such work under the dash), and was finally able to get the hard line attached and tight. Whew.It's too late now, but I think it's in someone's previous lessons learned post regarding the pedal box---install all hard lines and run down the tubing nuts to finger-tight before securing the pedal box in place.
Tonight, I will bleed the clutch, using both the air pressure push followed by the regular method, with the aid of my most excellent wife. And sometime tonight, I should be able to see whether the gearbox is usable or a piece of junk like the rest of the car started out to be.
I anticipate having the wheels on and the car back down on the ground on Thursday evening (Tomorrow!). But, as things go with a resurrection, that timeline is flexible.
