New Product: Hard Line Kit For 1964-1966 Ford Mustangs

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on May 31, 2019 3:58:28 PM

Not everyone has proper brake line tools. As a result this can make doing an installation of a disc brake conversion kit a bit frustrating. It can lead to challenges in getting the lines routed properly to valve locations and connection ports. The lack of the proper tools can also lead to a look that's less than desirable.

Many of you have mentioned that having a hard line set would make life a lot easier when doing a disc brake conversion. So we listened and we are very proud to introduce our very first hard line kit. What makes our hard lines unique is that they are not a reproduction. These lines are specifically made for 1964-1966 ford mustangs using Master Power Brakes products.

How Does a Combination Valve Work?

Posted by Master Power Brakes Team on Dec 5, 2018 2:15:00 PM

 

A Combination Valve is just what the name implies… a valve that does a combination of things. The problem is people get confused as to what is happening within the valve and what might be going on. With the information below, we hope some of this gets explained.
