The calipers are brand spanking new. I didn't do the tapping trick but I'll try it after work. The soft lines are used but they dont seem to buldge one bit. I've watched them closely just for that reason. This is also on a 7.5 so the small drum brakes were on it before, so I was just wondering if that could be an issue as well. Seeing as most of the trucks I've seen the swap done on were either newer, or had an 8.8 with the bigger brakes.
So I popped my hood at lunch at work thinking that hey, maybe Ford was cool and put a proporting valve on the master. And they did. So now I just gotta find out if Mustangs came with no ABS and grab one off that and cross my fingers that it fits. Or drill out the casing and just pipe in one from summit racing. I'd really like to have it where on a hard stop the rear is chirping instead of the nothing that's happening now.
