    parking brake valve

    Any suggestions for a good location for a matco parking brake valve locaton? Experimental smith. I have the underseat battery ( front) and associated relys, also have DAns control gust lock and the two Matco brake fluid res on the seat. Starting to run out of room. Ideas please. Thanks in advance for the help.

    I have put them under front floorboard, centered,left to right.. towards rear of floorboard, might have been down on spacers so lines could clear tubes.... (

    (BUT..this on had some funky brake cylinder stc, mounted up front by firewall at outside of interior panels... which got removed and original style brakes put back in after one season, but parking brake stayed)

    I had to shorten the arm on the valve some too.....

    don't think i have a picture of that though.....

    We used a longer bolt on the flap handle ratchet arm and fastened the Matco valve on the inboard side, under the seat. Fairly easy to reach.
