    Will 14bolt SF Wheel Cylinders fit a 14bolt FF and vice versa?

    They should it all depends on the brake code i.e. jb6 jd6 etc. I believe they both should 1 1/16 wheel cylinders. Why not just go get the right ones. They are only about $10 each.

    They are more like 25 bux here but thats not the point. My thinking is with the 1 ton 14bFF i have now it has large wheel cylinders (1 5/16 i think). I currently have EXTREMELY poor pedal and the back brakes are locking up long before the fronts. I think this is due to the wheel cylinders requiring too much fluid with the stock halfton Master cylinder. SO my thinking was: IF the 14BSF cylinders swap with a 10bolt and 14BFF cylinders swap with a 14BSF I could potentialy put the 10bolt cylinders on the 14bFF reducing the braking force. Now don't Flame me I'm just throwing out ideas to get the brakes working better. I thought of an adjustable proportioning valve but i don't know if this will restrict the amount of fluid going to the back breaks. (i know it restricts pressure). Right now I run it with the rear line pinched off and other than only having front brakes is has MUCH better pedal and stops very well compared to having the line unpinched.

    Well it should work properly with the correct wheel cylinders.

    Have you gone through and bled all the brakes?

    Have you tried a new proportioning valve?

    Are the rear drums adjusted properly?

    Are all the brake components in good shape?

    Tried all that several times with no success. I won an adjustable prop valve off ebay, guess i'll try that before the 10bolt cylinders. Looks like i'll keep grabbing at staws on this one.
