Front brakes line lock
Thinking about putting in a line lock for the front brakes.
For years I have been runnng one for the rears.
It is a simple ball valve, I cut the rear brake line, and ran it into the cab. It then goes through the ball valve, back out. Then back to the original brake line. To use it you push down on the brakes and turn the valve. This keeps the pressure in the rear brakes.
The front is a little different though as there are two lines that come out of the proportioning valve.
I have been looking at different kits out there. With those you install a solenoid, and block off one of the lines coming out of the proportiong valve. It then goes into the solenoid, back out, then you put a tee to run the lines back out to the two front calipers.
I would think this would reduce the pressure to the front brakes and I am not really happy that is is electric. If I was to forget about it it could wear the battery down.
Ok now to my question.
If I was to run the one line for the front brakes right off of the master, into the cab. Then to a ball valve, then back out to the proportioning valve, I would not loose line pressure or a need to run a electric solenoid.
Would this work?
