I have a 1973 Scout II that I had front drum brake and converted them to disk. I did not install a power booster, and installed a new stock master cylinder. the problem I am up against is I have no peddle at all. I am wondering if I should purchase a master for a 1974 scout II with disk brakes cause the reservoir for the front brakes is bigger in that master or any one have any suggestions or have ran into the same problem as I am having? thanks
As part of my rear disc brake conversion, I bought an external 2psi residual valve from Wilwood. My plan was to remove the stock drum residual valve from the master cylinder and use the inline valve, but I just realized something: 1. My aftermarket disc/drum master cylinder has left and right outlets, two for the front line and two for the back. I guess the idea was to give options for left or right brake line outlets if space was tight. I have one port on each half of the MC plugged. If I'm not mistaken, that means that I have two drum residual valves (10psi) and two disc residual valves (2psi) already in the MC. 2. Could I just pull the unused 2psi valve out of the plugged port for the front MC pot and swap it into the back port where I now need another 2 psi valve? It seems like this would accomplish the same as the external valve and would save me from making two more flares that will probably leak. Any thoughts are appreciated.
