I used the Cu-Ni line and it does work easy. I just finished installing my CPP adapter bracket and dual circuit master. My 49 3600 had a single circuit and when you pushed the pedal down it would travel 3/4 of the way to the floor and then go hard. Stopping was iffy at best. I got the dual circuit in and got the system bled. The pedal does exactly the same travel with the same lack of stopping power. So I started from scratch and bled it all again really watching for air bubbles. Again exactly the same results.
The master has about 32nds inch gap between the push rod and master. The brakes are adjusted a little tighter than I like but I was trying to cut down pedal travel. I even sanded the newish shoes and cleaned any evidence of dirt/oil in the drums. Same result.
I'm guessing my best option (read most expensive) is to install discs front and rear. I'm really disappointed because I've had the truck 6 weeks and the first big show is tomorrow.
