RRC non-ABS: can you lock brakes?

Well, I finally got around to replacing the ABS from the RRC LWB with regular vacuum setup.

Doesn't feel right and I can't get it to lock. The truck stops OK, even abruptly but not on a dime.

FYI, I kept the LWB dual line fronts and simply fitted the servo and MC from an 89, also with dual fronts. The two lines going to the rear were joined in the enigne bay with a T basically duplicating the RRC without ABS.

So, if you should be able to lock a RRC non-ABS and I can't then something's wrong. I also get the red brake lamp come on and off indicating bad pressure so something's up.

And I thought this would be a piece of cake!

Oh...when you do lock 'em do all four lock, ideally? I would think so.

Yes, my 88 would lock all four.
