Question proportioning valves

hello all, im a new poster to the site but have visited it often.
well my questionn is, I have a 1968 Ford Torino 302, drum brakes all around not power, i need a new proportioning valve but cant find one, i want to know if the is any other cars that would work on my application or where i can find a new one.

also i found a pro. valve of a 69 mustang with power drums, would that work on my Torino?

Just by-pass the p-valve and get an adjustable aftermarket one, they sell for $50-$75 and if you convert to front discs or 4 wheel discs later you can just adjust it.

Usually the valve is just plumbed in the rear line. You put the front lines on one circuitand then do a few stops and adjust the valve so that the brakes stop about equally with a little front bias.

sounds like the same prob I had on my camaro, it's a combination valve not just a proportioning valve, try contacting yearone.com, they might know if one of the mustang ones they do will work

Pretty much all the combination valve does is have a pre-adjusted porportioning valve in the rear line and a sliding switch that triggers a light to let you know one side of the system has failed. It's not neccesary to have one except in a restored show vehicle.
