Default Combination-Proportional Valves..

Hi John! Thanks! These are non-adjustable valves. It is my understanding, from my research, that adjustable valves are not required for the front disk brake/rear drum conversion we want to do. Only for other applications do you need an adjustable one. It is also my understanding that the metering device inside that left part of the unit controls the fixed 70/30 ratio. Dave can correct me if I am wrong. Yes, I only took these valves off Ford cars that were running front disk brakes and rear drums. Mostly, they came off of early 80's Mustangs.

I am told that the disk brakes off a Mustang would not directly convert to our Squarebirds. The spindles are different, for one thing and one would probably need a conversion kit. I want to use the original spindles on Rose, and my 14" rims. I think I want new disk brake equipment on Rose when I do this.
