oem MC and prop valve on disk/disk

due to issues that drums have with mud I decided to do a rear disk. I was going to go with the caddi calipers but have read a lot of horror storys with them. So i just got some metric calpers. Anyway there all instaled and ready to go. now the front of my truck has stander gm big calipers, the MC is from a 3/4 ton chevy with hydroboost from an astro van. in my reserch it seems every one uses the vet mc from 67-78. So i was wonderin if this will bolt up to the the hydroboost i have now? second quetion my pic a prat has a **** load of the eldrados with the disk disk set up, so would those be a good mc and prop valve to use?

You could start with the stock 3/4 ton truck master cylinder, just make sure there is no check valve installed in either port. Since the application is different than what the factory proportioning valve was designed for, I would scrap it and install an adjustable proportioning valve into the rear line. That way you can set the brake balance to suit your vehicle.


By the way, use the spell check feature when posting. It would make your questions a lot easier to decipher.
