Adjusting S-10 Proportioning Valve

Hey guys,

I think I have a compound problem. I am trying to run rear disk brakes on my S-10, and am wondering if anyone knows how the proportioning valve for the rear brakes adjusts. While I realize there are inherent problems with what I am trying to do, I would like to try to make it work(while I realize it probably will not, and I will be pulling it apart to change the master cylinder). The valve has both the front and rear brake lines plumbed into the it, so I am thinking it might actually work if adjusted to the extreme end of the spectrum. The question is: has anyone ever messed with tuning this valve? I dont want to just start turning the adjustor without knowing what the effect will be. My experience is things sometimes tend not to work right when you do this, and where brakes are concerned......

Thanks for any insight.


Chris
