This evening I swapped the Dodge MC back in and gutted the proportioning valve. The brakes were sketch with the Eldo calipers and dual piston Ford calipers running off of the TJ MC. The TJ MC was functional with the drum brake 60, but was not working well at all with the new Eldo calipers.
There is plenty out there about this swap and I think I wrote about it quite a bit pages back. There are many who will tell you this is not the solution. What I will tell you is that I can finally stop from 45 MPH in about 20 feet. I had the MC and it didn't cost me any new money.
I cannot lock up the 40's like some report, but I am stopping better than I have since the one ton project began. I have a high stiff pedal as is usually reported with this swap. I will leave the tech on braking to the gurus, but this is going to work for me for now.
In gutting the proportioning valve I simply removed this rubber O ring. It can be easily removed without destroying it if you want to swap it back it in.
The Dodge MC next to the TJ MC. I think I addressed this pages back. I took it out after the 60 swap and shoved some rubber plugs in it and left it filled in the event I needed it in the future. It's been sitting on a shelt in the garage ever since.
Now it is back in service and doing what it should. I can revisit hydroboost in the coming months. At least I can stop now without setting off trouble codes and terrifying myself.
I went to work on the parking brake cables and of course those will not work out. I got some Teraflex TJ cables for stretches and the exposed cable is way too long. Gotta mess with that still.
