    July 12 2020, 01:49:39 PM
  • Forzfed: And many parts.  I have 5 spare hoods and 2 extra tunnels.

  • earlbrown: That's cheaper and easier than doing a TH350 swap.      ....and will still deliver the extra heat, shitty gas mileage and buzzy road experiance the owner is hoping for. :)

  • Just a Six?: Who knows the larger rear brake cylinders we used back in the day? All I can remember S-10 manual trans but what year was it early 80's?  :hmm
    August 03 2020, 01:28:35 PM
  • ULYCYC: Yes S-10   GM # 18012305 You can cross it over to the brand of choice.
    August 03 2020, 03:34:13 PM
  • Just a Six?: Thanks Ed I think one of mine may have a little leak in that area
    August 03 2020, 04:46:32 PM
  • Just a Six?: Any chance you know which year? I'm trying to find it on Rock Auto because GM discontinued them I did find one on E Bay but Rock is better to deal with for us up North
    August 03 2020, 05:04:36 PM
  • Just a Six?: Looks like 83-88 are the same according to E Bay but no mention of Manual Trans

  • earlbrown: Keep in mind, the goal is to have larger bores in the cylinders. Over the years the part number has been superceeded a lot of the time to the smaller bore units. Because ''they fit''.
    August 05 2020, 11:58:02 PM
  • Steve Wood: Also remember that those larger cylinders work better with larger front brakes.  Otherwise, you may find your self spinning down a slick road when the rears lock up before the fronts.
    August 06 2020, 11:17:26 AM
  • earlbrown: I've heard that over and over but I've never seen it.   To me it makes sence to run larger rears realitive to stock fronts because we usually run wider/stickier rear tires.  Kinda puts things back in balance.
    August 06 2020, 01:32:10 PM
  • earlbrown: Not to mention, those 'small' rear cylinders were specked out when the Regals had skinny 14" rears from the factory.
    August 06 2020, 01:33:00 PM
  • Steve Wood: too bad you were not in the middle of Hwy 6 with me during a light rain in 5 O'Clock traffic when I had to hit the brakes at 35 mph.  You would have had some experience to add to your already impressive resume.
    August 06 2020, 03:55:39 PM
  • earlbrown: Odd.  I've drove my shit in the snow with pretty bald BFG T/As, in the rain, etc..   And I've always locked up my stock fronts first.
    August 07 2020, 05:27:36 PM
  • nocooler: Mine would always lock the rears up first with the big cylinder. I changed a couple other cars back to small cylinders as the owners didn't like it. I found if you leave the shoes loose they aren't as bad. I would adjust them tighter before going to the track.
    August 08 2020, 03:55:56 PM
  • Just a Six?: I have no stock proportioning valve so I used to run an adjustable valve when I was driving 3+ hours to the track every weekend but took it out years ago. If it happens to rain & the roads get greasy I head to the slow lane because I've had the back end jump out on me although I also had no front sway bar at the time & it was a bad combination especially on a windy rainy day. I've never thought about going back to stock but since my track days are over this discussion has me thinking about it?
