Staging brake plumbing
Stanley - December 22nd, 2013 at 09:25 PM

Giving the drag tech section a run but have a question or quandry.

I have dual circuit MC and like the idea of all four wheels working off the foot brake.
If I hook the outlet of the staging brake into the brake light switch port of the MC for the front wheels does anybody see an issue. The two circuits of the dual circuit MC are completely isolated from each other.

Andrew, I am no expert on brake systems but if the switch port and the front brake port are interconnected without any valves between them I don't see why that wouldn't work. Be worth a try in any case.

No mate, it won't work. You can make it work tho. The front circuit has two hoses that go to each front wheel. You need to block one and use the top outlet (to help bleeding) plumbed to the stage m/c. the outlet then goes to a tee which will feed both front wheels.
