your brakes will be mushy because your current master cylinder cannot move enough fluid to put good pressure on the calipers.

So what exactly does the valve do? Is there any specific spots to mount it closer the the master cylinder of further away you just splice this into the old brakeline somewhere?

put it whereever. the valve lets you back the pressure off on the rear brakes so they dont lock up.

Well boys i looks like the rear end is gonna have to wait till spring the d-shaft isnt going to clear the gas tank. So once its starts to get 50 or 60 out then i will pull the old tank buy a fuel cell and get-r-done.
Any input on how to install a cell would be very helpful and what kind of setup your running would be great.
Thanks
