i just bought an adapter for my 4L80E to d300 a couple of months ago and central fourwheel drive was the cheapest place i called. i don't have a # right now but they have adds in all the mags.

as for the stock master cylinder i doubt it. my stock cj master didn't like the d60 and 14bolt i put in. i just swapped in a hydroboost from the same 1ton truck i got my front 60 from. from what i hear this is the way to go but i havn't tried it yet. i'm waiting to finish up this vortec 350.

My stock master seems to be working ok...but I run rear discs. I did use rear drums for a little while and they worked ok.
I will probably replace entire system with something else......hmmmmmm....waitin for a flame board on who uses what and why!!
Any takers???? <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

that is what i'd do. try it and if it works then there you go. i doubt it will but it might and it doesn't hurt to try.

I am using the stock master cylinder and power booster and it seems to work really well. The jeep stops better with 38's, than it ever did.

Don't forget that ~1993-5 the YJ master cylinder boosters got bigger. Mine (95) is considerably bigger than my friend's 92 or my other friends '91. I imagine that CJs are the same size or smaller than early YJs, and that TJs are the same or bigger than mine.

I have discs up front on my Ford 60 and drums on my rear 60..NO PROBLEMS! as in ZERO! It will work just fine. So long as you have a proportioning valve (you do) you sould be fine. Stoppes better than stock and 35's!

massey and others....can you lock all 4 wheels on demand with the 1 ton brakes?
would you say your braking is close to, or better than stock?
also, what needs to be done, in terms of brakelines, to mate the hard lines from the axles, to the jeeps original equip. im thikning of the flex hose going to the rear axle, and the two front lines...isnt the 1 ton stuff a much bigger line....maybe i have it messed up....whats goin on there?

First of all, yes I can lock 'em up...all four.

Second, I have a flex hose running to my rear axle. Go here, http://www.amstreetrod.com/html/speed-flex.html . This is where I got mine. They are on my way to work. I got 2 sets(fittings) since I wasn't sure what size to get for the adapter to my hard line. They told me to just bring back whichever ones I didn't need. Maybe if you know the vehicle your donor axles are coming from they MAY have some sort of reference guide. Their prices can't be beat although their product is not DOT approved(the lines themselves). <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> It is however high quality! I've rubbed 'em a few times. oops. <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0"> and they look great.

Hope this helps.

I KNOW you have a proportioning valve. It is part of the MC itself. It isn't something you might add externally.
Putting your lines on is rather straight forward, just bolt and go. Now all you have to do is figure out how long you want your brake lines to be.

ps. Thanks. Not beast though...it's MASSEY!!!! Here are a few slogans from years past re: the Massey Lift Co.

"How Massssssssssssey is your Lift?" "Go Massey or Go Home" "MASSEY,The Standard by which all other 4X's are measured!" "Have you hugged your 60's today?"

i see....so i have a proportioning valve built into the master cylinder huh....this may be a dumbass question, but who cares...is it adjustable?
you know, i consider myself fairly mechanically inclined...but im just starting to learn about brake systems.
thanks for your help man.

I have never heard of an adjustable one. That's not so say one isn't out there.
I'm just guessing here now, but I think the valve remains open until a certain pressure is reached then closes.
don't worry bout it. Slap them under there, then...HOLD ON! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> lol j/k lolololol
