aosborn You will also need a residual pressure valve for the rear axle drum brakes. A 10lb unit can be installed inline.

1930u Thanks guy's. I am using a proportioning valve.

Irelands child You do not need the residual valves but will probably need a proportioning valve and possibly a hold off valve to balance the brake application pressures. Speedway, Summit, Jegs have both (who said this was simple )

Do I need residual pressure valves?

To all- My Corvette style master cylinder is mounted at a right angle behind the dash. I'm using 1969 Chevy single piston front calipers and 57-64 Olds rear drum brakes. The master cylinder is mounted 24"-30" higher than the calipers and wheel cylinders. Do I need to use residual pressure valves?
