Make sure you have a good proportioning valve. Remember, the fronts should lock up before the rears.That is if you still have rear drums. Make a few braking passes and keep adjusting the valve to get the correct setup. Good Luck!
'66 Coupe, Father-Son Restomod! Under Construction!
Complete 72 Ford spindles with all of the items, calipers/splash shields/rotors $250 (ebay)
They were original so I bought new slotted/drilled rotors, pads (ebay) and new calipers and painted them red. ~$200 (local auto store)
The bearings were still good so no cost
Used original proportioning valve for a power booster car $30 (ebay)
New flexible brake line $45 (caliper to hard lines) (NAPA)
New power booster with Master cylinder (rockauto.com) ~$120
Used power brake pedal and bracket $30 (ebay)
Power brake foot pedal cover ~$10 (NPD)
The hard brake lines needed to be bent and cut so I bought a flair tool and re used the fittings as needed.
The firewall hole had to be enlarged as the power booster assembly sat a little lower and its bolted from inside the car vs. the engine bay so you might have to drill out the holes or as in my case the new mounting bracket for the brake pedal was set up for it already
I cant think if any thing else, overall it was easy to do once I received the correct parts.
Rear brakes. Basically, it works by reducing the braking pressure to the rear. You dial it in to make the rears lock up just after the fronts.
easiest way to test this is a wet car park with lots of room (careful!)
