    I looked at wilwood unit, but it has 2 outside for the front and the adjusting valve for rear.....I would need to plumb this backwards to get the valve for the front.....then need a splitter, and the plug one of the ports that would now be going to the rear

    Reading the description and some of the reviews on the link abive , it appears that the adjustment is to the rear brakes. How would that help when changing to skinnies up front? Wouldn't you need to turn down the front pressure to prevent skinnirles from locking up? Jim

    that's what I need to do........so to use the wilwood part linked above I would have to plumb it in backwards from their instructions scrubbed on the side........

    for my purpose I think I should get rid of the factory block on the side of the frame. its ment for drums and drums work on volume not pressure.......just join them with a simple union for the rear and tee for the front, it a single manually adjusted valve going to front inline with my line lock to the fronts.

    I'm debating on if I should replace the rear line with 3/16" instead of 1/4"

    Keep your existing lines. Remember,when the main line T’s at the back,it’s smaller from there to the caliper.

    Excellent! That's the one I was looking for! Thanks for the info. This was for drum/drum cars converted to disk, correct?
