if you have two lines coming out of the combo valve to the front brakes, you will have to go on the single line between the m/c and the combo valve.

There was a way we used a 3/8" brass plumbing levered shut off valve, and a choke cable. The valve was placed inline with the rear brake sysetm. Pull the cable and the pressure flow to the rear brakes was cut. Then it was time for no rear resistance brake torquing. A stock engine could do way huge smoke shows for a couple bucks in parts.

No need to have anything mopre than a line lock electric valve. Where you install it depends on how you want to use it. If you put the valve between the master cyl. and the front wheels then you can step on the pedal, tuirn on the line lock sw. and then let go of the pedal and hit the gas. When you're done with your burnout you simply turn the sw. off and the brakes release.
If you put it between the master and the rear axle you simply turn the sw. on, step on the brake pedal and hold it while hitting the gas. The line lock holds the line closed so the brakes are not affected while you're holding the pedal.
Both ways have advantages depending on how you want to engage it.

If you already have the lineloc, you don't need to fabricate a system.

It should be installed as designed, for the front brakes, I don't know why you would want to mess with the rear brakes??

Can you imagine being at the track, burnout, take off, caught up in the moment, forget to release the solenoid, climb on the brakes at the end and....front brakes lock up, no rears. What fun!

I can't say i'm a big fan of putting a $2.00 hardware store ball valve in my brake system that can produce over 1000psi...

They do make inline manual valves that are designed for brake systems. Anything not designed for the use should not be used on something as important as braking.

The line lock is great system and no knocks to it. When racing it is a valuable tool.

My post was reaccounting methods of school parking lot clowning.
