Hello puttster,Desert, I went with a proportioning valve for my front disc conversion. Right now the knob is halfway but IDK if that is the best place for it. What is your advice?
I decided to replace the front drums on my 65 Galaxie with a kit from Scarebird. Not that they were braking badly, I just hate messing with drums. First though, I wanted to get ready by replacing my rear brake shoes, which I did. That project took over a week (which is why I hate drums) but I...www.fordmuscleforums.com
Ideally the adjustable rear proportioning valve should be adjusted so that the front brakes lock up first then the backs under light, moderate and heavy/panic stopping conditions. QUOTE]
So the valve is to choke off pressure to the rears, so keep turning clockwise (Northern hemisphere) until fronts lock up first?
Boy oh boy you hit the nail in that coffin with attention to detail. It takes a tremendous amount of time, money and mental acuity to do this kind of thing. I spent a good 40 solid hours on those brakes and was over a grand in cost (of course that also covers buying extra parts for stocking).I know you are jesting.... but also in jest...
How thick is your wallet?
Seriously, the attention to detail etc, etc,
I'd love to have Desert build me one too.
