Proportioning Valve by Wilwood®. 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.
To properly bleed the brake system, begin with the caliper farthest from the master cylinder. For fixed mount calipers with two bleed screws on top, bleed the outboard bleed screw first, then bleed the inboard screw. Repeat this procedure until all calipers have been bled, ending with the caliper closest to the master cylinder. Once the system has been bled, the pedal should maintain a consistent, firm feel. If the pedal returns to a spongy feel after it has rested from the bleeding process, this is an indication that air still exists in the system. If this occurs, repeat the bleeding process until all air has been purged and the pedal retains a firm feel.
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.
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.57.38 99.90
