Hi All

Don't know if this is interest to anyone, but I am just about to install my new Booster and Master cylinder. So I thought I would install a Line Loc and a adjustable proportioning valve at the same time. The 68 is an Auto so Im running the Line Loc to the rear brakes , so it essentially when the switch is flicked the brake will only operate the front brakes. I wish brake lines were like the internet and were wireless so I have done my best to keep oll the line , valves etc as tidy and as compact as possible.

Here is the Hurst Line Loc


Adjustable Valve with integrated brake light switch


Here is the new Booster and Wilwood cylinder


First I made a cardboard template to gauge what I can fir without running interference from the inner guard


Transfer basic shape to 6mm Aluminum


Using a drill and a Jig saw I cut out the basic shape


After a little work with the file I put it in the vice and bent the vale support


Bolting up the units for a test fit before polishing the bracket


The bracket is sanded with 400, 800,1200 1500 and then a quick polish with Autosol


Bolted together and starting to make the brake lines

What bore size did you go with.Dont let any one talk you into DOT-5 fluid Wilwood doesn't recomend it at all.I found this out the hard way.
Thanks, I ended up going with the 1" bore after recommendation from the brake specialist, I suppose time will tell if his calculations were correct, I can swap it out if I'm not happy, Thanks for the tip on the DOT-5 fluid, in New Zealand most if not all fluid is DOT-5 so would have probably put it, not knowing.
