abs brakes on s-10 blazer

ok here is my newest problem ... the s-10 has abs disk brakes from the factory ..... i would like to keep the abs if possible ... the book i have says that the abs is controlled by the tranny input so that they should still work without the computer ... but my gut tells me that its not gonna work ... so do i need to change anything to make it work (im not using the computer im getting rid of the fuel injection and all) and if it isnt gonna work are the brakes gonna work fine without the computer (as in function like normal brakes not abs) or am i gonna need to change alot of crap?

ABS has a separate controller.. pretty sure it talks to the main controller for wheel speeds and vehicle speeds tho... in any case, the old S10's have Rear wheel ABS, which is actually more harm than good.. I'd bypass it, with a heavier engine up front, it won't work like it should

just replace the master cylinder with 1 from a pre ABS S10.. order 1 for a early 80's S10.. it's the same truck, just a lot simpler stock ( carb, with only a computer controlled ICS
