Master Power Brakes sells all kinds of brake parts and pieces.......and they are in your state......North Carolina. They cater to the street rod crowd......and are on the same road as a LOT of the Nascar teams......and should be able to help.

DEUCE.....

You should be able to get adapters to go from the bubble fares (I think they are also called ISO flares) to either standard INnverted Flare, or National Pipe Thread, to fit the adjustable valve. The adjustable valves like in the picture usually come with adapters to INF, because the valve body uses NPT.

There are adapters to go from just about anything to anything else when it comes to pipe and tubing.

It installs in the rear line ONLY.
Please read:
http://auto.howstuffworks.com/master-brake2.htm

Many people choose to use only the proportioning valve and not the metering valve for several reasons, including the fact you can buy it seperately and adjust it to suit your needs.... and 4 wheel discs normally dont need front metering. Front metering can be quite useful for disc/drum in the snow.

It installs on the rear line to prevent premature lockup.
