Modle 80 D brakes
In early spring 2015 , dusted off the 80D did some polishing and headed out of garage for first car show of the year. I live on a hill overlooking the Cascade mountains. Thanks to the logging days, I tested the brakes before starting down the first hill. Surprise! no brakes!. Used the hand brake and brought the 80D to a stop. Backed into the garage. The problem was the left front brake line had been rubbing against the tire when a sharp left turn was made. I had not put the proper twist in the line when the line was installed. The NAPA Parts Store soon found the correct brake line and in two days had the new line. This time I checked the clearance for the line in a left turn and corrected the twist in the line, clearance was fine. Close call.
The 80D sure catches the attention of most of the car show audience. I meet a lot of people and most love hearing stories of the 80 D history and look at the many information articles that I have gathered showing the 80D.Looking forward the 2016 car show season. Ira & Oksana Hagins
