You'll need to extend the BLA-G360 and BLA-R340. 8 inches is not enough to make it over to the propotioning valve.
If its not your daily I would also check and make sure your fittings arn't frozen in the proportioning valve. If they are you will have to take another path with the connections.

Re: Booster Upgrade

Might also pick up a brake line bending tool and some flare nut wrenches. They will make your life easier.

Re: Booster Upgrade

Hi all,
update of problem,

in the end I to fit the 2000 WJ master cylinder and brake booster with the fittings and tubes that I described a few posts ago, with new rear brake drums and new brake cylinders

the braking has improved considerably, but the brake pedal has a too long stroke, it acts only in the last part of its stroke. is this normal or can I do something ?
how can i attach pics ?
thank you


Giacomo

Re: Booster Upgrade

adjust up the rear brake shoes first. Perhaps re-bleed the system.

Re: Booster Upgrade

Hi all,


as already mentioned, the swap has brought about a 100% improvement in braking (even if in the first part of the brake pedal stroke there is no effect) but now I no longer have the rear brake lights ...

brake light switch or an adjustment problem of the same on the brake booster rod ?
thank you


Giacomo

Re: Booster Upgrade

I also saw that there is another white switch on the brake pedal, on the top what is its function ?

could it possibly be used for the rear stop lights ?
