Nope, no problems - if it's not turned on, the fluid passes through with no restriction.

Righ, I think my problem lies elswhere.

I'm using 3/16" brake line and my locks are 1/2". So the line necks in and out. I thought that maybe I had some air trapped in there. I'm going to try something else tomorrow that I think will solve the problem.

Thanks

Re: anyone here running line locks

Well I had picked out a low end line lock from a printed copy of the Jegs Catalog... if only I could find that catalog with the sticky notes on a few pages....

The fitting sizes were typical brake lines size and simple reducers also listed. At least that's what I remember... Was offered a pair for free... hmmm wonder if they are still laying around.

It will require two (one front and one back) but I will be happy to just hold all four wheels with the flip of a switch - allowing for blood flow to the toes, might even be able to get out and laugh at the folks that made me sit on the incline. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: anyone here running line locks

I have a Mico brake lock that I am not going to use if you are interested. It has never been used and is the eletronic lock not the manual.
