will i have any problems if my brake lines run higher than my master cyl ? i want to run my lines down the tubes on my frame but that will put my brake lines about 4 inches higher than the master cyl. will this be ok?

I would try not to do that if possible. My old car has floor mount pedals and the brakes never did feel right, even tried proportioning valves.

it will work but you need to run a small PSI
residule valve at master cyl. to keep fluid
from draining back into master cyl. I think
it is about 1 lbs valves

Yeah, Residual pressure valves is what I used. With my calipers being higher than my floor mount pedals I tried every way possible to bleed them but the pedal never did feel as solid as my old hangy down pedals but they did stop the car. Maybe it was just a different pedal ratio but they never felt solid. BTW, I need a set of reverse mount hanging pedals if anybody has some let me know.
