    Spoke again with my mechanic today, and I was totaly confused by my earlier converstaion with him.
    Under the master cyl, is the brake valving assembly. There should be a nut located on that assembly that holds the valve in the assembly housing. remove that nut slowly, and remove the spring behind that nut. Remove 1 coil from that spring, that should help with more rear bias. If that doesnt quite do the job, remove 1/2 a coil at a time till you can skid the rear wheels on gravel.
    I hope that will help with your problems. Sorry for the confusion with my earlier posts. My mechanic agrred that removing brake line aft of the valve will not affect line pressure.

    Now that makes a lot of sense.
