another hydroboost ?
 
ok so the line that comes off the large resivor(front brakes) is 3/16ths and the line for the rear is 5/16ths ( i belive) now given this set up came out of a cadilac would it matter if i ran 3/16ths line for everything? i say this because A: i have 25 feet of 3/16ths line, and B: the lines that run off the t on the rear housing of my 70 or 3/16ths. other specs = 60 front disks, 70 rear drums. thanks for any advise. jiMMy

the reason they did that is because it uses drums for the rear and drums require more volume to operate hence the larger line for the rear . if you run 3/16 to the rear drum they will work but might be a lilttle mushy , if you ever plan on going to disc in the rear use the 3/16
