Post residual pressure valve

Putting a brake system in a "T" bucket. Disc up front and drum in the back. I have an Adjustable Proportioning Valve and I have told I also need Residual Pressure Valves both front and rear. Can anybody tell me why? Thanks, reclusej

In your T your brake booster is under the floor board. which means it lays lower than your brakes. the fluid siphons back to your master clyinder. You'll have to pump them to get the pressure up when you want to stop.

You didn't mention what kind of master clyinder your running.

awsum34 is so correct and while that fluid is going back into the master cylinder, it usually pulls air in thru the calipers. Without the residual valves you blead the brakes only to find the system full of air the next day. 2psi is for disc brakes, and 10 psi for drum brakes. You can get them from Summit or Jegs. Mount them as close to the master cylinder as you can.
