Every one I have ever seen does. The big reservior is necessary to feed disc brakes the amount of fluid they need to compensate for pad wear. There is no real difference in the piston, or bore...But if you have a MC that is supposed to feed drum brakes all around it may have RPV valves installed in the ports , just under the inverted flare seat.

Take a paperclip or piece of wire and gently probe the port(s). If there is an RPV valve you will feel a soft plug about 1/4" in ...no RPV and you can push the paperclip in a god ways.

Dont use an RPV equipped MC port with disc brakes attached to that port.

If you have an RPV in one port only, that port needs to hook to rear drums.
If you have a 4 drum system, you can add 10# RPVs to the system if your MC doesn't have any .


What exactly is your system? 4 wheel disc? 4 w drums? disc/drum?

Later, mikey

right now it is all drum,but in the future I will probably be putting disks on the front .I bought 2 #10 valves and a adjustable proportional valve,my MC used to be on the fire wall & I'm moving it to the frame,I bought a bracket & pedal assy & MC (kit) from speedway and am just in the process of starting to install & don't want to goof up!!!

Go ahead and install the 10# RPV's in your lines ...Just make sure that you switch the front RPV out for a 2# when you upgrade to front discs.

Double check that you don't have an RPV already installed in the port that will go towards the fronts. It probably doesn't, but you never know.
