my new car also has the cage routed so that I cant run a brake booster if I wanted to so I am going o put manual brakes on it. Can anyone give me a I dea of how to do this. Is there a master cylinder that will bolt up or what should I ask for at the part store. I plan on running stock brakes but do I need a proportion valve or if so where do you get it or where do you put it. I have never messed with this part of it. Im on A 1/2 mile dirt, so do i need more back brake then front. Car IS a 84 or so Monte

I run stock master cylinder with 4 wheel disc.. I just bolted the stock one to the fire wall and reversed the lines.. works great..I use the one off a old chevy truck with manual brakes ... comes with the clip in rod so you dont have to worry about the rod falling out..

so If i am running disc in the front and drums in the rear I can just buy a master for older chevy and its a 2 stage master is that right and I need to reverse the lines, someone said that if u do that the front will scrub all the time due to a built in resdual valve that is desighen to keep spring pressure on the rear drums. Im not sure so I will try anything yall recomend hehehehe

get the master off a 69 chevy truck and just hook the lines up like they are now

17j is right since your not running rear disc no need to swap the lines....Towman
