Need help! Line locks not holding

Ok i have a 69 camaro that has had line locks on it for years with never having any problems. I changed the front brakes over to wilwood 4 piston, and changed the rear to wilwood disc also. No matter what i do it will not hold car back for burnout. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance

I found that if you hold your button THEN pump the brakes it works like a one way valve and will hold better. I had your same problem before doing this.

It also could be the LineLoc unit itself. Earlier models did not have stainless seat and ball, so with carbon steel, corrosion may have set in.

yes I have tried bleeding the brakes, They worked fine before I changed brakes over. Could it need a bigger volume master cylinder due to calipers having more pistons?

Not necessarily, try a smaller diameter M/C, it'll make more line pressure with the same force on the pedal.
