k, I have read all of the "brake" posts on this website through the search option and everyone seems to have a different set up, so If you are running an "OEM" master cylinder and running 4 wheel discs, let me know what type of mstr cyl. your using and if your running a proportioning valve,residule,check,or nothing at all also if doing so or tried it let me know if you tried swapping the front brake lines with the rear brake lines on the master cylinder. I dont want this to be a fued between anyone here on the forum I just want to know what works for you. Sorry about the book!!!!O

I am using the stock master cylinder and booster. I just converted my rears to disk. The info I got off of here made it easy! I can't remember how the stock lines were ran because I replaced all of my brake lines.No proportioning valve. I hooked the front line up to the front of the master cylinder and the back to the back. I will be putting them to the test Saturday Night as this will be our first night of racing. I've changed my whole set up this year so I'm real curious as to how it will work.

Discs all the way around, no stock proportioning valve, front lines to front reservoir, rear to rear. Metric calipers on the rear. Adjustable proportioning valve on RF line. Stock master cylinder is OEM off late 70's Camaro. No booster. Pedal is soft with this setup, despite thorough bleeding. I just bought a master cylinder for an 80 Corvette and am going to try it this weekend. The P/N for the master cylinder I just bought is ARI 8336071.

Hey Mr Kwik there was just a post the other day on that and he gave a website you can go too. They have all the info and parts you could want. I know you never swith front lines to the rear and they do say run a valve but look at post from the last like 4 days and you should see the website the guy put up.

old car had fronts to front and rears to rear with no proportioning valve.

the new car has fronts and rears tied together with a proportioning valve on the rear line. i havent tried it out yet just so you know.
