    Brake Pipe schematic drawing required for Jaguar XJ6/12

    Good day, My Chevy stepside is in the paint shop & I'm presently looking for a brake pipe drawing to finalise the braking system. The Chev has a front subframe with 4 pod calipers & power steering from a XJS & rear inboard discs with diff but not in the rear subframe/cage.
    All the calipers & master cylinder have been reconditioned by professional company in Cape Town.
    What I need is help on a sketch of any additions in the pipework from the distribution block to the calipers, like residual valves or proportional valves. The master is mounted on the bulkhead as it was on the Jag. All dodgy fittings will be replaced, is there any sensors that would be useful that should be fitted?
    Cheers Tony Cape town

    If you google up Jag IRS images you will see that there is one pipe to the rear sub from the distribution block which is just split into two, one for each caliper. I do not see any proportioning valve that is seperate. Its likely that because the master cylinder is dual feed (front and rear) proportioning is already taken into design. If you have trouble with rear lock up you could always fit a manual adjustable pressure reduction valve.
    Hope this helps
    Jon ex Jag owner.

    Hi Jon, thanks for the information, the calipers & master cylinder have been reconditioned & I have all the connection pieces for connecting the pipework to the calipers. I just have practice my double flares on some spare pipe before I actually make the ends off at the components.
    I do have the flaring tool for single flares but will have to search for the small dies to make the double flares. The option is to cut every line to correct length, with sweet talk, bible in hand & a donation (cough! this is Africa) take them to a pipe supplier & see if he will flare them without buggering them up for me.

    The Jaguar m/c has a split 52 / 48% front rear balance built into the m/c as standard ( done by seal position and replenishment hole postioning.).
