rear brakes

hi,

I got discs all round on my sedan and I am having a problem holding the car at launch.

My rear breaks just wont lock the wheels.  Confused

you mean the car rolls forward waiting for the staging light to turn green? so before you launch you get red light cause it rolls forward? after your burn outs step on the brakes a couple times at the staging light it kinda helps from rolling.

front wheels on the track bite, hand brake up, gotta rev to about 5k-6k and drop the clutch and floor it, then I play with the accelerator to keep it about 6k-7k rpm.

Your handbrake cables adjusted ok? Decent pads?

hand brake is 100% for daily driving or hill starts.

pads and discs are ok, not much wear. I think they are cheap ones thought.

I also need another proportioning valve.

the prop valve is probably your problem.

I assume the reason if the non return?, the hand brake needs brake fluid in the caliper or it wont work.... found out the hard way.

I am still using the drum prob valve.  Embarassed

found a prop valve off a twin cam EF... should be good
going to look at it Saturday.

drum prop valve + discs =  massive rear wheel skidz.

NEED A VALVE OFF A 90-93 INTEGRA ...NEEDS TO BE 40/40 VALVE
Icarus

we dont get integras here. only 1 I think... a 3g??? wired looking thing. only seen 1 as well.

I am looking after a EG sedan (it has rear discs) and been playing around with it and it rear brakes are grate!

so here it what I found out so far.

my 150 carbed EF sedan "DX" 2030
the 160i DOHC EF sedan 3040
150 carbed EG sedan 3040
160E DOHC EG 3540 ?

anway I found a really smashed up EG sedan with a 3540 prop valve and bought it for $25 cant find a 4040 any where

35 40 should be close enough. Probably even better.

better? how so?

I would still give my front teeth for a 4040

I'd have thought it would be more accurately proportioned for a sedan.

If you have converted to rear discs from drum brakes you have now downgraded your rear brakes. Drums are like 5 times better than discs on the honda ef. Well they are on the ef6.

In britain where i am, we try and find rear jap crx drum rta's off the 1.5 ef6 because they work so much better. They are put on the ee7/ef7/ee8/ef8 as an upgrade.

Youll find the discs will be good for a few hundred miles (if that) that they give up,where the drums are tight all the time.

Never had a problem with my rear disc swaps.
