    48 Pan and tranny into a softail frame... brakes

    Hi all,

    I've been switching my 48 Pan / STD head engine and 4 speed transmission into a Kraft Tech frame.  All is going very well so far.

     

    Rear brake question.  I'm putting a 4 piston DNA rear caliper on, Can I use JP part # 242-086 (brake pedal, mount and older master cylinder) for this project?  The plate will mount up to the bolt holes on the frame fine.  Question is, will that master cylinder manage that 4 piston rear brake caliper?

     

    Much appreciate any input,

    Respectfully

    You may have change the master. I think a smaller bore will afford more pressure, But I don't remember for sure. Tech has been scarce on here. You might want to call them...

    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.
