Were you running the complete F250 brake system on the last rig? Nothing removed?

Reason I ask is because of the proportioning valve. Its the one item that you haven't stated you are using in the new setup that would have been in the old setup unless you removed it.

Without it the fluid and pressure gets split 50/50 between the front and rear calipers. Which would cause your issue.

I was wondering the same thing.

I have the same problem you describe John. Started when I removed the proportioning valve.

I've just lived without breaks for the most part

If you want to borrow an adjustable prop valve to test this theory mine out of the truggy is just laying on the bench. That way you don't spend the $100 on one and find out you have another issue.

Shoot me a text if you want me to bring it with me tonight.

The master has a Brake Master Cylinder Fluid Control Valve on it. Attaches between the line and the master only for the rear brakes.

The bronco had the stock master from a 96 f250 1.250 bore, 03 ranger booster, and the stock pedal assembly from the 96 f250. And the same calipers in the rear as the buggy. Front calipers were 95 f350. Buggy fronts are 89 f350.

Went and got a f250 pedal assembly (4:1) and installed the booster from the EB. Pedal travel is way better. But it doesn't feel like I have much power assist. So half way there lol. Gonna pick up new hose for booster as I don't like the hose I am using. Grab my timing light and vacumn gauge from work.
