Thanks @hdbitchin!  Glad to see power works.  Starter engages and things turn over.

Wheeled Thumper outside because I could!

@maniacmac @jfgo @hdbitchin hey guys, have any experience with plastic brake lines?  My FC kit came with one.  Pros cons vs steel?

I’ll cut this one down and eliminate all that cooking.  Need to find the compression fittings for it.

Pros... It is flexible and easily routed. It can be easily replaced since it is flexible and easily routed. Since it is for the Forward Control's rear brake it won't be visible for the most part.

Cons... It isn't steel.

Plastic line expand a little and some think it causes a softer brake, I one of them thinkers

I really didn’t like the idea of those compression fittings either.
