Question for the brake nerds... Why in every diagram I see, the front brake lines are plumbed separate, while the rear has one line to the axle, and then a T fitting splitting it to each caliper? Can one line run to the front axle and then T off to each caliper? I don't see why not.
when I three linked the front of my 4runner I ran a single line to the front axle and t-fitting to split to each caliper. it worked fine for me
shock towers look sweet! I like them more now that they are on the truck
Front brakes are not plumbed separate, there is a "T" under the MC then a separate line to each caliper. All you would be doing is moving the "T" down stream.
Sooo.. I'd like to run this setup But I'm wondering about the bore sizes If I run the 1 1/8" bore, the pedal would be harder to push, but less travel. If I run a smaller bore like the 5/8", the pedal pressure will be less but the throw will be greater. Anyone have knowledge/ experience? Also, do I need to keep the front and rear masters cylinders bores the same? And the clutch, anyone know the best bore size for the clutch?
You do not want 5/8" for brakes, you will not build enough pressure. But 5/8" will work fine for your clutch, as long as the amount of throw you need is reasonable.1 1/8" is probably bigger than you need, but I can't really say without knowing the surface area of your pistons.I generally run a smaller master in the rear. The size difference will depend on the surface area of your pistons, and wether you have drums or discs out back.Hope this helps.Nice looking project too.
