Full pedal, drove it home with no issues. Looks like a lot of the lines were replaced and being it has hydro boost, that eliminates most potential brake issues.

True score!
My Chinook had a steering damper on the arm.

That thing is sweet I still can't believe that someone would not at least try to get a couple grand for that. Get those pics taken before the current ice age freezes your camera shut!

Well, Assembling parts for the big redo. I scored a whole front axle out of a 270 with new rotors and two mint tires and 19.5 rims for 400$. Then I was down on Long Island and a buddy of mine hooked me up with an Edelbrock intake....I can't wait to get started on it. I gotta finish up an M813 in my shop then she is in next.

Maybe from an old damper?
