I was reading down below on a thread about mushy brake pedal. Someone was talking about pushing in a plunger when bleeding brakes. I was wondering if I have to compress the rubber nipple/button on the front of my proportioning valve when bleeding brakes? I've never heard of this before...any help? By the way I just did a drum to power disc conversion on my 65

thanks
Joe

I think this applies only to '69s with disk brakes. They have a "disk brake metering valve" mounted next to the master cylinder, in addition to a proportioning valve mounted lower down on the frame. You only have to worry about the metering valve, not the proportioning valve when bleeding.

A rubber doorstop pushed between the metering block and brake booster works well to push the switch on the metering block on my 70.
