I wasnt expecting it 'til mid week, but I'm not complaining.

It's off of a '97 F450(or F-superduty. Whatever the hell you want to call it.), with 75k on the odometer.



I didnt realize how small these things are. The hydro unit itself, isnt much bigger than my hand.

Even though the M/C has about half as many miles as my bko, I'm still gonna get a new one from Checker. That and one of the pressure lines will be getting ordered by wednesday. The only thing I'll be waiting on is the power steering pump, and the other pressure hose.

Maybe I missed the post, but why do you need an F-450 booster/MC?

Upgrading to 1-ton running gear and 44s.

I didnt really like what I read on the 1-ton brake booster/master cylinder swap, so this is the route I chose.

If this fails, I can always back track, and try something different.

Ah, now I see says the blind man. It's starting to come together now. Sounds like a very cool project!

There are plenty of people that are running a similar setup as I'm working on, with just 1-ton brakes, but I figured I'd try something different...Besides, what better thing to experiment on than your brakes.:toothless
