    I'm working on my buddies 69 Camaro, drag car with line lock and I just did a front disk brake conversion kit on it. took it down the road and the front brakes are locked up, I know its not the calipers and the line lock solenoids because I undid the brake lines at the proportion valve and the brakes are free, any ideas?

    Is it a drum brake car? Did you change the master cylinder? The drum brakes require 5-10psi residual pressure and the valve is inside the MC (in most stock MC). Hope this helps.

    Did you adjust the rears yet or do they work at all?
