A few words of advice for all the 3.7 Roadster owners out there:
Check to see if the bottom hose is being fouled by one of the inner-wing to crosshead mounting bolts and the front brake pipe. I’d got mine up on axle stands and was giving it a bit of a once-over and noticed the bottom hose was catching on the N/S/F brake pipe, so I carefully bent the brake pipe out of the way, but then noticed the hose was caught on a protruding bolt a wee bit higher up which looked far more serious.
It was, too, because as I pulled the hose to one side it was caught fast on a protruding bolt which had very very nearly worn all the way through the hose. I’m sure that if I’d driven much more than a few more miles then the hose would have been punctured completely, leaving me in a bit of a pickle. And a puddle.
You should be able to see from above if the hose is catching on the bolt, but you’ll need to get under the car to check on the brake pipe. Then while you’re down there, also check to see if a brake pipe is fouling the brake servo vacuum hose, as mine was. Although it would have taken some time for the vacuum hose to wear through, it was well on its way so I’m glad I checked.
There are several other points where there is potential for the brake pipes to be fouled, so it’s worth just following each pipe run to see if there’s any poorly-routed sections that can be lifted slightly away from any areas where rubbing could occur, as it could save a lot of grief later.
