Line Lock electrical

Post #1 by powerband » Tue Apr 25, 2017 9:06 pm

setting up a front wheel 'line lock' for occasional burnout box use. Is the switch at shifter typically momentary or a toggle SPST ? .

thanks

They are a push button "Momentary" Switch, some of the shifter knobs like a T handle can have them built in. The button holds or locks the front brakes for as long as you hold the button down. Good luck :nod:

A line lock allows you to take up all the backlash in the drive line. It is a life saver for diffs & transmissions.
