Steve brake conversion

Is there any advantage to have Steve's brake pedal modification if I am not going with power brakes. I have a 65 auto V8 mustang. I am using a 15/16 dual master cylinder with disc brakes on all 4. Thanks, Chad.

Re: Steve brake conversion

From what I know, the pedal mod is to reduce the manual pedal ratio to the proper ratio for boosted you don't throw everyone through the windshield.  So...I would think that  with the 15/16 MC and manual ratio pedal you should be good to go.

Oh, and welcome to the best place on the web.  Hope you have a long and pleasant stay.

Re: Steve brake conversion

If manual brakes, do not mess with the factory pedal ratio.   If your 15/16" mc does not bottom out, all should be great.

Money you enjoy wasting is NOT wasted money... unless your wife finds out.
