    going to use this on my front brake circuit as an additional parking brake to go along with my rear mechanical setup.

    Paid all of 2 bucks for this... It came off this huge flat bed truck.

    Uhhhhh looking at the flare fittings used....that looks like it's for air not hydrolic. Air is only around 90-120 PSI. Hydrolic is 500psi and double flare.

    Its definitely hydraulic as I had to cut the thick rubber lines and drain out all the hydraulic fluid. If it were air then I obviously wouldn't have picked it up for my intended purpose. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    FYI, More like 1200 to 2500 psi depending on if late model w/ABS or not; said the former brake design engineer. Racing and most street stuff limits out around 1200 psi. Some rare ABS systems run up to 2500 psi.
