    what is the best proportioning valve to use? I am running 1 ton running gear, and my stock valve just took a dump on me. I plan on getting a disc brake kit for the rear soon, should I get a adjustable one right now? Thanks for the help! Jon

    the stock valve is a combination valve.
    in addition to proportioning it also contains a shuttle valve that you need in the event of a line failure.

    Not sure of the results yet but..........Here's what I'm doing.......Got Eldo rear calipers; and looking at the fronts of Eldos and 3/4 calipers, they look the same. So when at the junkyard, I also grabbed the Eldo prop valve. Just wonderin' about the master cylinder though??????! Prolly switch my K5 to a Eldo master.....then everything associated with the brakes are off a 78 Eldo.

    This is not a reccomendation, it's just what I'm doing to my '84 K5
