I have tried to figure out for a while now, how to hook up my line lock so I can do some smokies. I though about teeing the rear lines together but I wanted to drive the racetona on the street and don't want to loose ALL brakes if I blow a line. I like my car to much so I decided to spend the extra 30$ at summit and buy two of them.
The crappy thing was I had already run the lines to the rear, and had to cut and re-flare the line to squize these suckers in. I finnaly found a good place to mount them, and I love the look. :thumb: does anyone else run line lock like this?

I'd give my left nut for a functional/reliable parking brake. Looks good mac00x!
Not to mention one that isn't a stupid peddle like many of us have to deal with. Kinda sucks trying to bend over and release that damn thing while your trying to hold the car steady at 6k rpm in second gear doing a burnout in the waterbox!

man 89daytonaTII hit the nail on the head, I could just see me in the waterbox with the pedal down and trying to pull forward and can't find the release lever. Just hold it to the wood now and let go of the button, easy as that. It just sucks are cars are slit diagonal braking and I need to get two of these thing. Thanks iTurbo that is what you get when you have the right tools, bluepoint tubing bender and bluepoint double flare tool. I work at advance auto and tell customers not to buy the store brand flare tool, it pushes 3/16 right through, and 3/8" don't even think about it. Buy good tools and it's done right the FIRST time.

Thanks. I'm actually in the process of redoing a lot of brake lines on my Omni. So far I have the SS braided kit from FWDP and I have replaced the hard lines on the rear axle with pre-fabbed lines from NAPA. I was thinking about replacing the main hard lines that run from the prop valve, but they actually seem to be in pretty good shape still. I'll definately look into the bluepoint double flare tool when the time comes. I've heard bad things about cheap flaring tools before.

Ahh..gotcha. I really wasn't going for the smartass of the year award, honest.
I ran dual front & rear locs on my Scamp rwd racecar for a couple years before investing in a trans brake, and I gotta tell ya, anything I could do to work around using 'em would have been prefered..I usually did my burnouts w/o brakes at all..just jump up on the throttle in 2nd and roll out smoking, but as I said..rear drive & front drive are two different worlds.

Assuming you've got a working P-Brake and are driving an automatic, why not just disable the release (pull it back and hold it with zip-ties or a rubber band) and use the p-brake foot pedal to apply/release the brake for burnouts?

thats what i was just thinking... but..... thats the clutch foot.....

another thought... maybe its more work than its worth but how about a remote brake release like an electronic one and put that in a better place....


but if the line lock works koo.....
