    Does anyone make a prop valve for disc/disc setups on '80's chevy trucks. I do believe mines takin a **** cuz I'm gettin no rear brakes... no air in the lines, everythin adjusted right and my booster,MC, rear shoes and wheel cylinders are all good.

    Is usin a 4 wheel disc prop valve the preffered method? Or is it better to run a stock prop valve with the addition of aftermarket valve?

    stock valve is t frt and adjust rear. replace with t in frt and put adjustable unit by the master for easy accsess and plum it hard to rear. then bleed and test drive and set to your liking.

    40-50 for the adjustable, around 85 for the one form inline


    worth the extra money. why adjust when you dont have to?

    Yeh, if I already hafta replace my stock prop valve I might as well go the extra step and get a disc/disc valve, would work just as well and cost less than buyin a new stock valve and an aftermarket valve to adjust the rear.

    Which is why I am on the prowl for a disc/disc valve:D:D Plus thats less **** to adjust and 1 less thing to go bad. Inline tube is closed already, I'll holler at them tomorrow and get one ordered.

    you dont need a stock valve for the setup if you use a t fitting for the frt and adjustable for the rear. all the stocker does is t the frt and pre set pressure for the rear adjusted.
