Tazz, thanks for your input. Your experience makes me feel better about my setup. I was concerned that I had something set up incorrectly. Apparently you (we) are going to have a good bit of pedal travel with a 1" MC. I guess I could try a 1 1/8" MC which I understand will reduce pedal travel but will require more foot pressure to achieve the same clamping pressure.

I took my car out yesterday (I live on a rural dead-end road) and worked the brakes pretty hard. It seems to stop satisfactorily but I was unable to lock up either end from any speed. A booster may be the way to go

Good luck with your project.

P. S. All the residual valves do is keep fluid from draining back into the MC where the MC is at or below the calipers.
