    Just about have my SOA done and am working on getting the brakes hooked up. I have a newbie question though, on the rear axle, can I switch the location of the line in and the bleeder screw? The bleeder is on the rear of the drum and I would like to move it to the front so that the line in is more protected.

    you can move the wheel cylinders around but you can't move the brake line to the bleeder screw hole. Reason is that it has a diffrent type of fitting. HTH.

    Just remember if you switch your cylinders around, that they will adjust opposite of how they do right now...


    Disc brake conversion...

    If you did that, You would always have Air in the Lines, As that is'nt the furthest away point from the Master Cyclinder. :ban:

    the front could be the furthest (by plumbing route) if done correctly, but the bleeder is a different fitting.
