Wilwood Proportioning Valve
Now you can fine tune your Mustang's brake system for the performance you are needing, whether it be at the track or drag strip! This proportioning valve weighs in at only 5.2 ounces, and has two .25" side mounting holes spaced 1.00" apart. Unlike a standard knob style valve, the in and out ports on this proportioning valve are 3/8-24 inverted flare seats, which do not require a tube nut adapter to install 3/8 tubing with inverted flare 3/8-24 nuts. With this valve from Wilwood, you can adjust the line pressure from 100-1,000 psi, depending on your preference.
Proportioning 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.
The 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 System
Do 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.
Not OEM Replacement
Adjustable proportioning valves are designed for tuning and balancing custom brake systems on performance, racing, and other types of special purpose vehicles. They are not designed as direct replacements for any OEM application.
