"bolt on" disc brakes question for vacum line location

Discussion in 'Classic Mustang Specific Tech' started by 65fb302v8, Feb 24, 2006.

  1. we purchsed a front power disc brake upgrade kit for mpb and have painfully:bang: gotten all the lines in place mounted the booster, proportioning vlave and bolted up the calipers and discs. now we are stuck on where to tap in for the vacum line. we have a 302 and theres 2 choices, 1 off of the carb or the back of the intake manifold which also is used by the auto tranny. weve been told to use the tranny tap and use the carb and also been told to use the carb and not the tranny tap.
    thanks for all suggestions

  2. Guess you should use the carb and not the tranny tap then. Since you have been told that twice. :rlaugh: j/k couldn't resist.
     
  3. Mine is tapped off the trans. No problems.

    I took a 1/4 NPT 90 degree to 3/8 inverted flare adapter for the brake booster, and I drilled and tapped it for 1/8" NPT 90 degree to 1/4 inverted flare adapter to the trans.

    It's been working for a few years.
