    That is a proportioning valve. If it is leaking I would replace it as you may be loosing brake power.

    If you are running rear discs, I would pitch it in favor or an adjustable valve from Summit or Poly Performance for the rear brakes and then run the front lines at full power(no valve)...

    Well if the fan is spraying brake fluid then you can say good bye to your nice new paint. And don't bother going to a parts store to find the stock proportioning vale, they won't even know what it is half the time and they cannot get them. I tried once.

    Actualy it looks like it might just be the fittings leaking. You could probaly just replace them and fix your leaks.



    Also, do you ever change the filters on your relocation thing? If those are fram either you had a stock pile or they aint been changed for at leased 4 years or better.

    Its just spraying it around onto the frame and crossmember not blowing it back really. The filters arent even hooked up. I think the PO had a big cooler attatched too and took it out before he sold it.

    yea it has to be the fittings i just gotta start wrenching
