Is the poroportioning valve needed?
I just upgraded to 4 wheel power disc brakes on my 69 camaro. I have a proportioning valve that came with the kit but it keeps tripping every time I push on the pedal and it won't let fluid get to the back brakes. I removed the valve inside of it (which made it a junction block) and I was able to get fluid to the back because now the dual master cylinder feeds both the front and back at the same time. I don't want to leave it this way because if I have a brake failure I'll loose all my brakes. How can I eliminate the proportioning valve and still have a safe system? Any help will be greatly appreciated since the Hot Rod Power Tour is coming soon and I have to be ready, going for the long hauler this year first timmer. Thanks
