From all I can see I have no fluid going to the front brakes we played withn the proportioning valve but now they are low again where can I get one also what does the metereing valve near the master cylinder do thanks Mike
We replaced the front hoses I am almost sure I have a problem with the proportioning valve I was wondering where I could get one also was wondering what the metering valve jus below the master does Mike
According to a Chevrolet Training Booklet I have, the metering or "hold off" valve "delays the application of the front disc brakes momentarily so the rear drum brakes can build up sufficient pressure to overcome the force of their retractor springs. This valve then provides balanced braking."
Regarding your front brake problem, I had a similar problem because I had not bench bled the master cylinder and had a slug of air in the brake lines thet I couldn't get out with normal bleeding.
Thanks Fred I did have some trouble when originally installed but we power bleed them did your button on the proportioning valve pop also were they alright for a while that would be great if it were the cure thanks mike
