4 into 1 = will it work
« on: July 05, 2013, 09:03:25 PM »
For rear brakes I was thinking of running 2 sets of calipers in to one master ... Any one ever try this ... Having issues finding some parts ...I  was going to putt a ..T .. On first set then get the back to with 2 90 deg ....  Issue is I can't find the T s .... Any  ideas

I run my front brakes off of 1 port on the MCP Master and the other port runs my rear and I use T's with no problem.  Takes a while to bleed tho lol

Run both my fronts and the rear off a single port master on 2 different mowers.   Works great.

I run stainless braided line so I get my fittings from Summit Racing or Speedway Motors.


All AN and pipe thread fittings.

Hey Paul, so you have a master cylinder with only one outlet that has the volume for 3 calipers?  What did that come off of?

Actually my BP has a BTS master and I run 3 with it just fine.  My FXT has the MCP billet master and it wors just as good.  Keep in mind I run high quality braided line so I don't get any line flex.  I think that is why it works.  You also have to be sure your petal is lined up so it don't bind. You would be amazed how much difference that makes.
