Is a "adjustable" proportioning valve not going to work? I've never used one before.
(I hoping so), I have a Willwood PV that I'll be using on my rear disks (front drums). Yes, if you only had disks on one end, the rear isn't the place.. But they came with the micro-stub axles I need to reduce my CV angle.. I would have been fine with drums all the way around. I'm not running a road course. I just need to come to a stop once.. /8o]
I think the valve was $45. You would think that you would be able to "fix" it's position? I would hate for a someone not familiar to think they just turned the heater on? j8oO Once I get it set right (and it actually does the job) I'm going to safety wire the knob in place... just in case. If it got moved that would be one rude surprise, (ya think?)
Proportioning Valve, Knob Style.The new generation of adjustable proportioning valves combines the latest refinements to deliver precise pressure metering and strength from a compact forged billet design. Pressure adjustments range from 100-1000 PSI and provide for a maximum decrease of 57% in line pressure, the most of any available valve. Adjuster knob with fine thread tuning provides precise pressure adjustment. This adjustment lets you fine tune the front to rear braking balance by proportionally decreasing the rear brake line pressure. Valves weigh only 5.2 ounces and have two .25” side mounting holes spaced 1.00” apart. This valve varies from our standard Knob Style Proportioning valve, as the in and out ports are 3/8-24 inverted flare seats and do not require tube nut adapters to directly install 3/8 tubing with inverted flare 3/8-24 nuts.
