Brake line sizes, nuts and routing
OK For my MC, which is the early type, the front hole is either 3/8ths 24 or 10 mm, and the rear hole is 12mm, I think.
The front hole serves the front brakes and the rear hole serves the rear brakes.
So the larger port is for the rear, which in my case needs a proportioning valve as I have discs back there. I'm not too concerned about the port sizes and stuff as I have God's own flare tool and the line and the nuts are pretty cheap.
What I don't have is any frame of reference. The fronts are dead simple; MC port to 3 way T to each side. Rears, not so clear. I think that the 1/4 inch line is supposed to go to a proportioning valve and then to the rears. There are plenty of these buggers out there. Wilwood makes a simple knob-adjustable one that you can fool with until you get the feel you want. Jegs has them from about 35 bux all the way up to over 100.
The OE Rover one appears to be a lockheed unit as used on Volvo 2/7/940s, and is non adjustable. It looks to have 12mm in and 10mm out. It is mounted somewhere down on the frame or something? As opposed to an aftermarket one that would be mounted up near the MC for access.
Guess I'm looking for any ideas regarding the proportioning valve and the best way to set this up.
