Man, that's even weirder.

I stripped the threads on the T100 MC I was installing tonight so no test drive I'm a bone head.

Default brake upgrade

Dave, your not the only one. Are we talking about a 73' Fj-40 with an entire Hi-Lux front axle? Or Hi-Lux disc brakes installed on a Cruiser axle, front or rear?

V6 IFS calipers on FJ60 rotors
FZJ80 MC
V6 vacuum booster
In my case, SA front calipers and disks in the rear, but not really required
Front Range Offroad Fabrication modified Summit Racing proportioning valve

All the above (rear disks optional) are well integrated and will stop you NOW. I tried the incremental approach and was not happy until the Full Meal Deal.
HTH,

Full Hi-Lux axle, front.

Got it! Thank you. What size wheels are you trying to stop?

37", on 16" wheels. Not sure if some of the available options have specific wheel size requirements.

Default 37s with mini truck brakes

I can't lock up my 37x12.50 R15 Iroks on dry pavement with my original 1989 calipers, booster, master cylinder, stock rear drums, fj60 rotors.

It sure sounds cool and the pitch angle change is pretty amazing when I try though.

The setup I described above will do that VERY nicely. The howl from four locked 35" MT/Rs definitely has an instructive effect on errant compact car drivers. ;-)

He's already got S12W calipers and booster. He should also have a 1" master cylinder. Proportioning valve, that probably keeps the fronts working. I also really wonder what's the story with the FJ80 master, there's got to be something about it. I'm tempted to try it to replace my worn one, but am still unsure on the details with the rear circuit and drums. Marlin says it'll work with either, but what Ige and Marco say also makes sense and I don't want my rear return springs causing my pedal to go to the floor.

There is nothing special about the V6 calipers unless they're from a 1992-1995 4Runner, which are S13WB castings. The only difference would be a 1988 V6, which got S12W and the 22R trucks got 12+8 calipers. In 1989 Toyota started giving all 4WD trucks the same calipers, master and booster until the 4Runner got the upgrade in 1992. The only differences would be if the truck had ABS.

Whichever ones I have, from my 1990 V6 3.0 RC1, had more fluid capacity than the stock 1987 I4 calipers. FWIW.

Brian from FRORF thought the whole hullabaloo on the FZJ masters residual valve was untrue... because of near zero runout of Toyota rear disks. Dunno. Mine from Marlin works mah -velously.
