I'm about to install a Hurst line-lock, S-10 cylinders and large brake shoes. Any tips on mounting,wiring or brake bleeding would be appreciated. Will I need a proportioning valve to safely drive this on the street and not have the rear brakes lock up?
Mine were okay until I went to vacuum, then the rears wanted to lock...after doing several loops down a slightly wet hwy in 5 o'clock traffic, I switched back to regular cylinders...I did not notice much difference in holding ability.
I would suggest an adjustable valve as it is obvious that one is upsetting the factory balance when changing to larger cylinders.
too old, I reckon...I was going about 20 mph when they locked up...no matter which way I was facing, I saw people trying to get out of my way and little place to go because of the traffic...ended up in the center turn lane going the wrong direction...
I decided that that was my lucky day and I should not try it again.
Get ready to look at your break light coming on/off. Previous owner of my GN put in a line lock and I have intermittant brake light that comes and goes when you hit the break. All attempts to figure this out have been unsuccesful. I am told the line lock screws with some sensor that sends a false positive, which in turn, sets the brake light on. Breaks are great, but light is annoying. Light bulb is coming out next time I get the initiative.
Something sounds funny. I have a linelock on one of my cars and the only time the light comes on is when I use the line lock. Regular driving has never made the light come on, something seems wrong. Hopefully you can get it fixed.
My light doesn't come on. However, my line lock is installed after the prop valve. I'd bet that an install on the inner fender just off the master cylinder can cause this. It is impeding flow to the prop valve and causing an imbalance, thus the prop valve switch is sensing it and voila, the light comes on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I have line loc hooked up right at master cylinder and the brake light comes on with line loc..but never while driving.. I have S-10 wheel cylinders and 4 large brake shoes and alumn. drums. holds 12lbs boost at line with a 3000 stall convertor.. combo seems to work great.
