Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm trying to keep this simple and not go hydroboost.
You have to use RTV on those to seal them up. The factory TJ master cylinder has a rubber gasket on them and the Corvette does not.

WFW has some bad a$$ copper RTV between the MC and booster.

Works like a champ.

I 've got black and blue at home and some right stuff.......

I did put the proportioning valve on and it made a tremendous difference. I can either use the TJ booster and Corvette master or I can use the YJ booster and try either master, Vette or Dodge. The TJ booster and Dodge MS will not clear the hood.

What are your thoughts. I'm thinking YJ booster, its brand new, and try which ever MS works. Vette will be first, its already hooked up and bled somewhat.

yeah buddy, thanks for the advice and thanks for sending that plug for my arb compressor.


I ended up with a single diaphragm yj booster, made my own mount, with a corvette master cylinder. The dodge would not clear the hood. I may look at a van master that people say works good. It stops, but there is room for improvement. I had to reverse the lines on the master from what everyone says is the right way to get any kind of stopping power. I can throw it in reverse, slam on the brakes and lock up the fronts, but it won't do it going forward.

Where is this? Is it worth the drive from the west side of the state?

Are you guys going to Harlan next weekend?

This was the first full throttle beat down.

The CJ did really well. It needs some shock tuning and a couple things changed up. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and wheels straigt outa the box.

Um (yaaaawn...) the copilot sucks balls. Is that good enough for a comment?



Seriously, that pig sounds sweet and looks good. I bet it only gets better as Honcho gets it dialed and gets more seat time. How much air pressure were you all running?

I know bud, I think the best was on battery hill where she almost came end over end and no one got a vid or a pic. Happel can verify, it was a little sketchy at best. I love the wheel base and the width, it makes for a very stable ride.

Those things look like they had 20 pounds or more. I bet you could run those down at about 3 psi. Although, I am sure they are pretty stiff just because of the new-ness. When those sidewalls get broken in, that thing will ride like a cadillac!

Pull the valve cores and drive it back and forth to Happy's twice.

Sidewalls will be spot on.

If you look at the video you can see them wrinkle a little bit when they hook up
