What didn't ya like?

I cant get them to work like they should. Both were rebuilt and bleed over and over again and I just cant seem to get them to work right. We are considering maybe going with some brembos next year.

The problem I have is the bias adjuster is wider than the 2 master cyls. When I bolt them to the chassis, the adjuster hit the side where they are bolted. I will try for a pic tonight.

Here you can see an aluminum plate. I used this as a back plate for the master cylinders to give them support so it doesnt flex the side panel. Also where the front brake lines go thru the side panel I used a rubber grommet to keep them safe.



Here are the master cylinders mounted and the all lines attached.


Here is my mechaincal brake bias. Very simple setup and I am going to make it adjustable on the fly from the dash. That will come later. It adjust from front to back.


George, do you use 3/8 clevices, or what size are they? Also, do you thread the aluminum block? THanks
