Ford Mustang -
InstallationProportioning valves are normally installed in the rear fluid line to prevent the rear wheels from locking before the front wheels, or to give a driver the ability to make fine adjustments in front to rear bias percentage on the track to compensate for tire wear, fuel load burn-off, or changing track conditions. It is generally not recommended to attempt to reduce front wheel braking capacity. Use only the two .25" body holes to secure the valve to a mount. Do not attempt to remove the adjuster knob or valve body end cap to facilitate thru-panel mounting.
AdjustingThe adjusting knob is marked with an arrow indicating the direction required to decrease line pressure to the calipers. The knob rotated all the way out (counter-clockwise) will provide a maximum pressure reduction of 57%. Rotating the knob in (clockwise) will incrementally increase line pressure, up to full pressure. If the range of adjustment in the valve is not sufficient to properly balance the vehicle’s bias, changes to other components within the system may be necessary.
Testing The SystemDo not attempt to operate the vehicle until the system has been fully tested under controlled conditions in a safe location. After the system has been bled, checked for leaks, and the proper pedal resistance and travel have been determined, make a series of low speed stops, then gradually progress to normal operating speeds.
