    The MBM Technical Guide (http://www.squarebirds.org/picture_g...guide_V1.0.pdf) has this to say about combination valves:

    "They are by far the best valve to use for all disc brake conversions. All our kits use DOT approved Combination Valves designed specifically for either Disc/Disc or Disc/Drum applications."

      Since the major auto makers assume responsibility for their products, they hire the very best engineers. These engineers save the company far more than their salaries just in liability suits.

      Squarebirds and the competition had drum brakes (and DOT-3 fluid) because that was the best there was at the time.

      Today, front disk brakes with combination valves stop all the cars out there (with DOT-3 fluid). Some still use drum rear brakes (like Robin's 2010 Escape) or disks all around. THIS is the accepted braking system that holds up in court.

      Whatever 'the guy at the counter' says, means very little when it deviates from modern standards and practices. - Dave

        The input bolt centers are on standard 3-3/8" square and it comes with a check valve. -= Dave
