Very pleased with my AMC Cub bought yesterday. Been umming and arrring about what to create. Sleeper,Rat look, military or all the above. Perhaps a super charged, desert rat look!
Think a good name for him will be Neo ( being the original/first amc cub to pass the IVA test)

I like it, Get it on the road quick! You don't want anyone in the same town as you driving a Mokealike first

One of the first jobs I need to do is put some new brake lines in.I want to declutter the engine bay and move away from the yellow label tandem cyinder and put a cleaner looking single master cylinder in. Can any one tell me what rear pressure reducer I would need. The one that I think I need are out of stock at mini spares http://www.minispare...px|Back to shop

Cheers

get something like this

 as I guess the rear is lighter than normal an you can also increase the braking if loaded.

I was looking for the original part. Out of interest, being lighter at the back would you put more braking power to the back or less?

You are mot putting more or less braking power anywhere. You need to restrict the pressure to the rear. Or limit the pressure to the rear.

The power comes from your foot. To much at the rear and you will spin.

OK Perhaps I worded it incorrectly. Meant which has more / less pressure! Visavis is the back to be made more or less efficient. So a lighter car at the back is more likely to lock up at the back?
