disc/drum brakes

O.K, lets see if I can get this right. 2psi residual valve on the front discs,
10 in back. good. Do I need a adjustable proportioning valve? Non boosted
set-up.

You can run a adjustable proportioning valve on Non boosted or boosted
set-up. I have one on my non power brakes it really helps to tune in the brakes i think. Cole

Yes, you should run an adjustable proportioning valve....Another good addition to any disc/drum system that does not have a true combination valve is a stand alone metering valve in the front brake line.
It's function is to let the rears engage first, this is especially helpful at low speeds and on slippery surfaces.

This valve can be used with an adjustable proportioning valve, and the residual pressure valves.

Most all cars with a combination valve have a metering valve incorporated into them.

Speedway sells them , as do several other companies.

Lots of folks run without them, but I don't care to build anyone a system without one anymore. They make the brakes feel much more controllable.


Check this thread out.
Splitting front brake lines.
