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 .
