    hey jeff , seen a post where you bought a scout with longer pedal rod ,can you explain .and what it helped.just did rear brake conversion,pedal hard when off,start the scout and pedal falls fast, breaks work but a real weird feeling,i do not trust it

    There is a flat rod between the pedal and the booster,thats been lengthened and the brake light switch needs moved up alittle bit.What this does is puts your brake pedal up higher than your gas pedal,like most other vehicles.The brake pedal in stock scouts just seem to close to the floor
    What master cylinder did you use,and did you change the porportining valve to a 4 wheel disc one,it takes a different amount of fluid and pressure to move a caliper than a wheel cylinder.

    i used a 79 caddy elderodo, the rear discs seem to be working fine , the front discs seem slow.but if i jack it up and hit the brake the pressure seems strong the wheels wont budge,how much longer is the bar
