    After I did the disc swap to the 14ff with the caddy calipers, I used a m/c from a '76-'78 eldorado and it works great. Will lock up my 37's really nice.

    SO with this in mind stock eldo m/c and prop valve should be included in the RR disk brake build kit.

    Only if you run a vacuum booster. That MC will not work with the Hydroboost units. For HB you need to use a MC that is in a HB application.
