Running into a issue with front disc brake conversion, right stuff has brake lines for the front that goes up to a proportioning valve under the brake reservoir. Problem I’m having, I removed the distribution block, but now the rear line that stopped at distribution block isn’t long enough to make it to the new proportioning valve location. How do guys extend the rear line up to the new location? Do they leave the distribution block and plug the other holes and extend from there to the proportioning valve under the reservoir?

Sounds to me that maybe you are using conversion brake lines or hardware with stock lines. As you know they are not the same.

I wouldnt leave the old dist block and cap other holes off, when I did that conv I also used all new brake lines, maybe a coupling to extend a new pc of brake line to the new dist block at MC?

I have one of their 4 wheel disc kits . Their line kit came with a fitting and a length of line to get from the chassis up to the new distr. block at the master cylinder.

You might want to call their tech guy (Dusty or Dustin I think) and find out what you need. They have pretty good support and have shipped stuff to me fast whenever I needed it.

Yes as others have stated give them a call directly and talk to their support. I once bought through a retailer and they screwed everything. They will not sell it but will give you the part numbers that you need for your project.

I went through that too. They make a short line and fitting to connect to the old line. I had to call them.
