Low Brake Pedal
Building a '33 Ford street rod - have Chevy metric calipers on front and Cadillac E-brake calipers on rear. Using a manual Corvette disc/disc MC. Unable to get a high pedal, currently have hard and relatively good brakes with about 3 1/2 - 4" stroke. But that puts the pedal uncomfortably close to the floor (about 2" from floor). Pedal ratio is about 6:1.
Does anyone have knowledge or experience using a "quick take up" (step bore) MC such as from a manual '88 Chevy S-10? From what I read this MC provides an inital slug of fluid at low pressure from a 1 1/8" piston to "take up the slack" and then the 24mm (15/16") pistons take over to provide the braking presssure.
What do you think? Any other ideas?
