Line locks?

New member here! Put on line locks, well they locked up on the road!! Freaky. Car was towed and I took them off. Anyone have ideas why this would happen?

Re: Line locks?

when you say you put on line locks, do you mean you put a single line lock on or did you do one per side? I had a line lock on my 84 mustang and I had a switch besides the one to activate it just so I couldnt accidently? engage it. Even though looking back unless the switch in my shifter did something goofy or the wires going to the switch grounded out it shouldnt engage and not release. Maybe that is what happened to yours. I'm not 100% sure but dont you use the ground wire as your switch wire? Maybe it rubbed through somewhere and engaged the line lock.

Re: Line locks?

You press your brake pedal all of the way down, then press the switch for you line lock and hold it, then release the brake pedal and as long as you hold the switch the front brake, only, stays engaged. I like it because I could easily do burnouts without having to hold the brake and without wasting your rear brakes. It installs in your front brake lines.

How easy would this be to do with the B&M shift knob with the button on the side? I dont have an ebrake cable but where would i hook it up?

I used the button on my pistol grip shifter to engaged/disengage the line lock. It installs after the master cylinder and before the proportioning valve in the front brake line. If you install it this way you only need one line lock solenoid. And yes they are a lot of fun. It sounds difficult to install but its actually pretty easy. I think the hardest part with an sn95 will be a lack of room to access the stuff. Thanks to this thread I will be installing one before I put my engine back in, lol.

I bought the kit from summit. It was a blast! It took me about 2 hours to install. It came with brake lines to hook up to the master cylinder. A solenoid mounted under it. It locked both front wheels. Wired up just how it said an grounded to the body. Ran the switch to a toggle right by my shifter. People at the track enjoyed it as much as I did! Besides locking up on the road, the only trouble I had was burning off the tires too long and blowing out a drive shaft seal. I do agree that the ground might have done something crazy to engage the solenoid. After almost running my car off the road from that experience they came right off. Summit was awesome. Still had a warranty and they refunded $. I have a YouTube video of my first burnout. They are fun but do take caution. I'll just learn to heel toe now.
