Hilux's run a nice proportioning valve that bolts to the chassis rail, with an arm that mounts to the diff, uses the vehicles weight transfer to regulate pressure just a thought..

That is very clever. What models Pete?

Im assuming 71 brake lines are the same as 68 ?
Ive got one here that came with a chokostang 68 disc brake kit but was never fitted and its now gathering dust.
Id be ecstatic to get a six pack out of it atm.



I smell oranges !

I am running that p valve in my Mustang.
Works fine.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

And I'd be estatic to pay you a six pack for it.
Let me price some wheel cyls tomorrow and I will let you know

Out of interest, If I have Falcon master cylinder, Falcon calipers and Falcon wheel cyls, why do they lock up? Are the brakes too big for the weight? The drums are 10" x 1 1/2".

As with Mustangs, the Falcon has various size wheel cylinders.

I do. I am still running that p-valve.

I pulled out/off the drums in which I had installed the 5/8 cylinders so I did not have a p-valve in the system. As such I added it so it was easy to adjust the rear pressures.

Note: I still have the drums (complete and basically new) including cylinders on a shelf.
Make an offer.

OK.

Plan of attack # 2.

How easy is it to put Falcon rear discs on to it? Is an 8" and will prolly stay that way and using 15 x 7 wheels. And will that restore braking back to what you would expect from a Falcon around an XF vintage (i.e. pretty good)?

I am struggling to understand why my Falcon brakes (XB-ish on the front) and I presume very similar drums on the back are locking. Is the Stang lighter than the Falcon in the back?

I have an XF/EA rear disc kit lying around that I didn't use. Has new discs and refurb calipers. You can have it for $100 plus postage if you like.

I have no idea how easy or hard it is to fit to something that isn't BW.

COuld there be brake fluid/grease on the pads? That may make them grab.
