silvertaxasteg decided to stick with a single spring (as my door was actually closer to 100 lbs and I didn't want to apply too much tension)

Old extension springs (and ancillary components)



Torsion spring/bar/plates (spring is not wound in the pic)

Two (both 8ft x 8ft). The goal is to squeeze 3 cars in there with the lift. Sticking with extension springs/traditional overhead garage door opener on the other side.

Don't do that.

You're gonna hate yourself for not getting jackshafts on both doors!

I would go that route if the house didn't already have a traditional opener on the near side. If I ever decide that I need to squeeze 4 cars, I'll definitely make the switch.

That's a long spring. Shouldn't lengthen by more than an inch or so, I'd guess. One spring setups last for years, just that they're faster for the home builder. I like the header you built. The pullies look like they are too close inboard, though. I imagine you're still adjusting.

Thanks! Yeah! 39" spring. You're right about the drums (they are just sitting on the bar in the pic). They're pushed up against the bearing plates and tightened down now (I left a tiny gap because I wasn't sure if it being flush would prematurely cause the bearing to wear). Just waiting on the jackshaft opener (should arrive on Weds).

Installed the Liftmaster 8500 today. Also switched to a smalller spring (the other spring was a bit too strong for the door (which only weighs 99 lbs)):

Sweet small unit, I bet that will help with overhead space.

My Milwaukee 2763 decided to stop working as I installed a socket to remove axle nuts on one if my Honda's. 7-10 business day turnaround. Hopefully sooner, looks like I'll have to go manual mode now though.

What car are trying to work on?

I have the attachment for Mityvac MV7201 that doesn't work that good, hard to tell if it seals because of the amount of air in the tube.

I also have a Motive Pressure bleeder with a universal cap and twist on Ford cap. The bottles Motive sells are pretty nice, the hose is real supple.

I would suggest either buying a twist on cap for whatever car or buying a replacement cap and fittings to make one. The Honda version uses a universal with a chain system underneath, problem is if you have a master cylinder under a cowl and access to the reservoir only, it isn't going to seal properly.

Pressure bleeding, works pretty good, those pistol vacuum ones look nice too.


This is a much better kit than the Motive.

[QUOTE=Bently_Coop;51937365]What car are trying to work on?

The accord in my sig. It needs rears and I figure I'll flush the fluid as much as I can while I'm there. I like the idea of the pressurized option, but I'm afraid of throwing air into the abs unit and never being able to bleed it properly. So vacuum at the bleeder sounds like the safest bet, I imagine it's easier to be aware of how much fluid you're moving.

Oh that's simple to get the air out of the ABS, just lock up the brakes a few times (serious)
