    hey guys.
    i got a 88 gmc v2500 14b corporate.
    blew a brake line between the dohicky on the frame to the rubber line
    to the axle.i will start collecting rear disc parts after the edelbrock tes
    headers.but for now can i bypass the (hight valve?)thingamabob?
    the line nut in is 7/16 out is 9/16 and i think 3/8 at the hose.
    i bent the brackets closer due to 3" blocks.
    i can't find the hose in tmc or a mention in the forums.
    thanks for any help :doah:

    Yeah you can bypass that. Might get some interesting braking characteristics, but nothing you shouldn't be able to handle.

    Can't help with the how, just that it's a proportioning valve for the rear that works based on how much weight the truck is carrying.

    thanks

    i bought a 1/4 line.will have to salvage the large fitting from the old line.
    should work till the 4wdb conv.there is a good thread started for this.
    since i bent the brakets closer maby i will get a little better braking.
    catch ya later.
