Re: Line Loc pics

Well , I don't know about that . One, I don't have to worry about how dirty it gets at work . It isn't as hot in the summer (ventilated), and I'm almost starting to enjoy those wire ties jabbing my butt on bumps . No fear of falling asleep at the wheel , I know that much....

Re: Line Loc pics

I can't tell if you have rubber gromets or not in the holes but you'll need to be careful not to vibrate a hole in your lines. Does this location feel comfortable when you use the locks on a incline to lock and release?

Re: Line Loc pics

Can you run these by me ?
I know a line lok is to lock off the hydraulics to the brakes... But i'm unsure from you photo how they work

Re: Line Loc pics

I wish now I had put the valves up on the top of the trans tunnel , so I didn't have to bend down to use them . The only thing is , I was worried about the excess heat up in there . There is rubber around the holes , a cut brake line isn't funny.

Re: Line Loc pics

They are just plumbed into the brake circuits, then back to the same spot . The front valve has a line from the master cylinder to the valve, then back to the original lne at the master cyl. The rear comes off the output of the rear proportioning valve , then loops back to the same spot . Once the system is pressurized , I just reach down and shut one or both off , it holds the hydraulics tight . The rears don't work as well as the front disks, since the drum brakes aren't as strong . I tried to drag it with them locked with my brother in law's pickup, almost bent the front springs in doing so . I can also close one axle valve halfway off , and limit how much brake volume that axle gets to the point that one axle doesn't work . It does help with descending hills , so the trailing axle doesn't lock up and slide around .
