    Personally, I would use an adjustable proportioning valve. Eric can hook you up on those. We carry TSM kits, and they sell p-valves. Give Eric a call, he's pretty good at getting things shipped quick.

    I will also say that with the Vette MC's lately haven't been doing the trick, or should I say that I haven't been able to get a good one ~ even buying them 'new'. So recently I've started using standard Scout II MCs

    Either way, with rear discs you should use an adjustable p-valve so you can dial in your rear brake bias.

    Hello Damian,

    Thank you for your post.

    On my 800, I am using (both front and back) the Stainless Steel Brake's 4 wheel disc brake kit. I recently visited with SSB, and they indicated that the parts that they had used to build their kit (rotors, calipers, etc) were from the SVO Mustangs.

    I am far from being any type of a brake expert, and I didn't know what issues, if any, might come into play as I had identical brake components both front and rear, in regards to the proportioning valve.

    I will touch base with Eric next week.

    So, if your brakes are all the same size (disk and calipers) and you hit the brakes hard, your rear brakes will lock up first. The thing to remember is that the front brakes are responsible for most of the braking ~ they have most of the weight as well. And if you don't put a p-valve in there, or you use the wrong one, when those rear brakes lock, you can really put yourself in some hairy situations..

    The adjustable p-valve allows you to adjust the rear brakes 'power' down till the front brakes lock-up first.

    When you install the p-valve, you want to install it inline with the rear brakes. You can put it along the frame, or in the engine compartment (near or on the firewall). Do not put one on the front brakes ~ you want those to have full 'power'. The adjuster actually limits the amount of pressure, so when installed on the rear, you can 'dial down' the pressure till you get the bias you like.

    Thanks again for the reply and the tech info Damian.

    I have sent Eric an email for the adjustable proportioning valve, and will follow up with him next week.

    my understanding is that the website will be moved back to the first server when they're done tweeking it. At that time, the pictures will return.

    But I'll send an email to Eric about it. The webguy could fix this in like 2 minutes if he bothered.

    Are the pics for this thread gone for ever? The info is nice but the pics would be even better.

    My understanding was that Damian had departed well over a year ago.

    Can anyone confirm?

    D & C is here in Colorado Springs, so I can call over there and ask them.

    I emailed D & C, and Matt said that he is going to see what he can do to restore the images. He was not sure about timing, so we just need to be patient.

    Anyone else sill hoping that these photos get restored? I've been scowering the net for a good walkthrough of a D44 axle swap, but not a large amount of details out there.

    Check out project Esther in the build forum. I just posted pictures of this swap, and I followed the same method that Damian used in this build.

    Damien, The pictures are not showing up on this thread anymore - at least for me. Do you still have them. Starting my 67 Scout 800 build and this information is very helpful. Thanks!

    He hasn't been on the board for 4 years. Just start a new thread in the builds section, show some pics of what you have, start asking your questions. I just finished doing an SUA swap in my 800. It is on my my "Tip" scout build page.

    Shannon,

    http://forums.ihpartsamerica.com/showthread.php?t=9191

    I got a lot of good information from it when I did my build. As walkersscout said start start a build thread with pictures and ask questions. There is a wealth of info and knowledge here on BinderPlanet.
