    The half inch, or more is needed with stock lowerd bumps. The rubber ones squshed, and now my tire is shreded a bit. This was with less then a 1/2" clearance before more room was made. More the better. Happy flexing.

    I hate the Bendix electric brakes. Every time I need to crack a line to do anything it spazzes out. Your doing yourself a huge favour in getting rid of it. Did you adapt the 3/4 master/booster to work with the XJ pedal assembley? What is the propotioning valve from?

    my buddy b.foster has a milling machine and lathe..just milled the master to fit the footprint of the xj master, the o.d. of the cylinder on the 3/4 master is the smae as the xj one. took the push rod for the xj master and cut it off the re-drilled and tapped the hole and bobs your uncle. the prop vale is a stock unit for an xj for now,will probably have to get an adjustable one for the rears eventually

    3/4 master

    Sorry guys the 3/4ton master has a larger O.D.then the stock one but I talked it in to working with my lathe. Oh by the way the stock master piston dia. is .875 the 3/4 ton is 1.250 thats a gooooood upgrade.lol

    What are those calipers from? They don't look like Caddy calipers? But it looks like you have an internal ebrake?

    Your getting close to fun time now!
    Just been looking at the SYE job, and was wounderin' if you could let us know more about about the yoke you used? It looks like it is the proper type to bolt up to a Double Cardon style. Is the sealing surface a non-stock diamater? I'm thinkin it may have been another reason to make the custom seal retainer thing.

    this is where i bought the yoke, was a little pricey( but i needed it)

    http://www.driveshaftsuperstore.com/...liminators.htm

    the aluminum adapter was custom made by b.foster, but the ones from R/E or trans-dapt will work. the one i had made accepts the OEM seal for the slip yoke, so no searching or guessing which seal is required. had an old 242 case so we stole the output shaft and cut it down and drilled+tapped on a lathe. same as a hack'n tap just a little more accurate. if you want more info than that talk to b.foster he can splain it more better den i
