Residual Pressure Valve by Wilwood®. These in-line pressure valves retain a minimum brake line pressure to help eliminate excessive pedal travel in both disc and drum brake systems. The two pound valve is used in disc brake applications where the master cylinder is mounted below the horizontal plane of the calipers and fluid drain back occurs from gravity and vibration, thereby causing excessive caliper piston retraction and a longer brake pedal stroke. The minimal two pound residual pressure prevents fluid from flowing back without causing the brakes to drag. With drum brakes, a ten pound valve is used to compensate for return spring tension in the drums. Residual pressure valves are made from billet aluminum and color coded for easy identification. Ideal for Drag Racing, Street Rod and many Off Road applications.

A residual pressure valve is used when a master cylinder is mounted equal to or below the horizontal plane of the calipers or drum brake wheel cylinders. This valve prevents fluid flow-back to the master cylinder reservoir which can cause excessive brake travel or “pumping” of the pedal to engage brakes.
Install the valve as close as possible to the master cylinder and position the end marked “M.C.” toward the master cylinder and the end marked “OUT” toward the brakes. Ports in the valve are 1/8-27 NPT threads and will accept standard inverted flare tube nut adapters.
A 2 lb. valve is designed for disc brakes and a 10 lb. valve for drum brakes. If the vehicle has a single outlet master cylinder and a disc/disc system, only one 2 lb. valve is required. If the vehicle has a single outlet master cylinder and a disc/drum system, a 2 lb. valve is required in the disc brake line and a 10 lb. valve in the drum brake line (after the tee fitting). Balance bar systems require the appropriate valve just outside the master cylinder.63.83
Brand: Wilwood Part Numbers:
Wilwood Engineering designs and manufactures high-performance disc brake systems. Since founding in 1977, we have developed a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques that allow us to quickly and reliably create brake systems for almost any application. Their core ability is the rapid development of custom engineered brake systems using a combination of off-the-shelf and custom components. In addition to designing and manufacturing brakes for all types of competitive motor sports, Wilwood also manufactures brake systems and components for agricultural equipment, industrial applications, utility vehicles, snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and military vehicles.
