Re: Proportioning Valve for disc brake conversions



My 64 dodge came with the ssbc front manual disk upgrade it has no engine or trans so I am not sure how it feels. I am going to replace that with wilwoods 4 wheel disc with there manual master and pvalve. I will put the ssbc kit on my 65 bell 2. It has 4 wheel manual drum brakes. I upgraded to a dual mastercylinder years ago. The brakes are not that bad. I wouldnt road race the car but they seem fine for cruising its all new stuff though. I know my 71 chevy c10 has a factory manual disc drum setup. Thats kinda hard to stop it seems like the Plymouth 4 drum setup works better. I upgraded a 61 vet to manual disk in the front stock rear drums and that felt pretty good. I know I will stay manual on my dodge for room under the hood. The best feel would be power if you have the room and vacuum to do so.

Hi, and thank you for the replies.  Are any of the persons that replied using manual brake systems?  As in manual disc/ manual drum combos?

Same here. I use late B-body or F/M/J body proportioning valves on all my disc brake swaps.

I went the u pullit way. Volare spindles,large Cordoba pin calipers and I put a prop valve from 77 Chrysler. New rotors,calipers. Less than 300 10 years ago. I stayed all Mopar rather than spend a K on real brakes. Just old school that works juat as well

I believe wilwood makes them.  ssbc may make something I know they have adjustable bias valves. You have to make sure your master is correct. If you still have your 4 wheel drum master that is not up to the task, the brakes will never feel right. I believe both companies I said have a master combo valve setups you can choose.

Hello All,

I wanted to know if anyone knows of a fixed proportioning valve, versus adjustable, for my car.

It was a factory 4 wheel manual drum.
I have the dual manual master cylinder  ( though I think it isn’t capable of satisfying my new front discs.)

So I now have manual front discs and manual rear drum.

Does anyone make a straight proportioning valve for my application?

Thanks in advance,
