    I can't find the fitting that goes into the inlet to the ksport ebrake. I went to advanceautoparts and they said it was a 7/16-20 but none has it online. Where did you get your fitting?

    K-Sport Handbrake

    I installed a ksport hydraulic handbrake that's the same as the CNC staging brake. I disconnected the line going to my rear brakes and hooked it up to the inlet on the handbrake then bought some brakeline and hooked up the outlet on the handbrake to the rear brakes. Bled the system. and now my foot pedal feels soft unless I pump it, then that makes the ebrake hard to pull. and then when I let the foot pedal up and press it back down it feels like it's pulling the handbrake down. What did I do wrong?

    Thats a pretty sweet setup Motdyn-Lslfd. Is this a general mod that will work for most cars. I have an 86. Is it that simple for my car to? Thanks in advance. Excuse the post above. Newbie..

    so yeah if im dumb thats cool but i havent gotten the answer from reading the posts but i got an idea but i want to be sure!! i plan to purchase the staging brake soon, but i want to be sure, ur hooking this up to the rear line and the rear stays hooked up to the master?? so the rear brake still works normaly under foot braking?? just want to make sure i understand this right!
    Just run the rear brake line into the Hand brake from the master cylinder then out of the hand brake and into the back brakes. it is super simple. hardest part is flaring the lines.

    no, just do it like posted above. it works. that's is how mine is, your idea is complex. K.I.S.S. plus why would I only want front brakes?? I want all my brakes plus the hand brake incase i need one or the other during a run.

    Wow, I guess bringing up old threads to get info is bad.
    Even worse I bet than clogging the boards with more useless posts, so people can tell you to search instead of helping you.

    the coolest way is to not ask question to a post from 2 years ago.
