    ok, i figured i was going to fail , but i needed the rejection sticker to get me another 44 days

    list of failures

    1. tires stick out = buying bushwackers today

    2. rear brakes not working enough? 14 bolt disc conversion with new prop valve thats supposed to automatically send the right amount to the rear from inline tube. = solution?

    3. e brake not holding enough = re adjust them, should be fine

    4. emissoins

    HC = standard-152 Me: 278

    CO = standard-1.36 Me: 2.80

    now, paul (ryoken) is gonna talk with me tonight to see what we can do, but ithe more input the better

    Rootbreaker, i am running the hooley truck aveneger, so i know it can pass emissions, but i need to know how you did it

    thanks everyone

    Get the Disc/Disc propvalve from inline tube. I have one and it works great, my K5 stops better than my moms 2000 Suburban.

    your gonna need a bigger master cylinder to push more fluid, not a proportioning valve. that does nothing except limit the amout of fluid going to the rear. i finally got mine working correctly.

    and this WILL solve the problem you think? i mean, stop on a dime as it is now, i guess im just usinf more front than rear.

    it solved my problem. i have d60 front with 14bff rear with disk brakes. i replumbed the rear lines directly off of the master cylinder. i eliminated the factory prop. valve. i did that before i put in the different master cylinder tho and it could possibly work with the new master cylinder. with the stock m-cyl. i could not lock up the rear brakes with it on jack stands. now they work great.

    an aftermarket prop. valve only limits the fluid going to the rear if you have too much braking power. if you don't have enough to start with, how is going to add any??

    quality of what, the master cylinder? mine was fine, but you know how remanufactered parts can be.

    you wouldn't have to run new lines, just eliminate the stock valve. you might not even have to do that tho. you can buy the adaptors to put the lines together.
