If I get some time this weekend will do the bench bleed also have a new vacuum check valve, and a proportioning valve still had originals on the car, my brake calipers are missing the splash shields, do they also retain the brake pads?

Splash shields are optional. Some 'grab' the air and cool the rotors as your car moves. I guess they help keep water off the rotors as well. Most of my driving is in dry weather.

I run with no splash shields on the Galaxie and it has never presented an issue. - Dave
