Sean, great description of the process. I have just one question, when you were filling the res. you mention that after it was full, you set it back in position and let the fluid drain out until it's level with the hole. What postion did you have the res. in while it was filling?
DelGratta, I have had mine apart looking for a leak (1967) and some of the hose connections are a b*&^% to get to. I had to remove the bolts holding the top-lift-pistons in place to allow room to get to the hose fittings at the bottom. Also, I have found that Hydro-E-Lectric in Florida (877-493-7686) specializes in convertible top parts and sells very high quality parts. I ordered a set of lines from a Camaro parts house and the fittings literally twisted off the plastic line during installation. Hydro's stuff is closer to OEM and good quality. Just a thought. My sticker also said to use type F fluid. And Sean makes a good point, put down some plastic and have shop rags handy as this is a very messy job! By the way, your car is beautiful, I really like the dark blue.
