Any advise on bleeding brakes. I haven't ran the vacuum hose yet. I have the 304 engine with an edelbrock intake. I also installed wide track axles from an 84 cj7
thanks for the help
I have all the parts and will be doing this swap as soon as I can find the time.
larger res is for the front brakes.
pressure bleeder works best for me, but the speed bleeders look like a great idea (that I have not tried yet). note that you may need to pin the combo valve. Do a search on this site for more details.
As far as the combo (proportioning) valve, I have not been able to verify a difference between drum/drum and disc/drum. Many parts outlets list the same valve regardless of front brake type. Many have swapped over to discs in front and have not seen adverse braking using their original valve.
