Sorry its taken me so long to respond, been really busy. Anyway, here's the info that I have... I measured the pressure by attaching a guage (with a couple of adapters) to the end of the hard line where it ends in front of the rear axle. David, the prop valve that I have is the one with the handle, and not the knob, but both probably work the same way. I tried it with the valve fully open, and then again with it in the "closed" position and only saw about 100psi reduction (from 600 to 500psi) in pressure. (measured with the same pedal pressure, note: used my wife's bathroom scales, so they could be 20lbs. light or so, hehe) Should the valve have more affect on the pressure than that? I did replace the "El Cheapo" shoes that I had on it, and that seemed to help, but haven't got to drive it on the street yet. May pull the prop valve and install a splice just to check it. Thanks for the responses!
PS- Oh yea, the wheel cylinders are 15/16. I've thought real seriously about using the front cylinders, but can't seem to find the correct fitting to make it work. Guess I could use the regular flex line and then go from there?
