Wilwood brake proportioning valves are adjustable between 100 and 3,000 psi (depending on model) with a twist of a knob or the flip of a lever, and most can reduce pressure up to 57 percent. They let you adjust brake bias quickly and easily to compensate for changing track conditions, or for big and little tire combinations.

Questions & Answers Ask a Product Question
Q:

is this product for front & rear disc brakes?, and am I still required to use a 2 lb.presure reducing valve for the rear brakes or is this built in the proportioning valve ? thanks

Asked by DAVID on January 15, 2017

A:

It is a basic adjustable proportioning valve. I used it on a Chevy truck, in place of the stock ABS proportioning valve with front and rear disks. You can turn the pressure up or down to the rear as best suited for your vehicle. I don't think you should need a 2 lb reducing valve with this, but if you you installed a 2 lb valve to keep pressure to the back for a better pedal, you should keep that in.

Q:

Asking this question again....does the switch on the valve operate the brake lights, eliminating need for switch on brake pedal?

Asked by HENRY on October 16, 2018

A:

After purchasing this product in kit form with the MC, I can answer this question correctly per Wilwood's install directions:
"a fluid port with a pressure switch responds instantly to pressure in front fluid circuit for brake light activation". "....if you wish to eliminate the switch on the brake pedal, use the switch in the proportioning valve block". I can only translate this as the switch DOES activate the brake lights.

Q:

I am looking for a inverted by inverted flare adapter.
I need it to screw into this so I can attach my 1/4 rear brake line. Cant seem to find it?

Asked by TAYLER on July 09, 2018

A:

I am converting a 68 firebird std drum car to willwood discs 12.19" F & R , and 15/16" master willwood kit with the valve , eliminating the factory metering block . Try PN Doorman RWB-785-434 , and PN CLB-45045 at Summit for the adapter plugs commonly needed for GM brake lines though the 70s.

Q:

What bracket will this valve work with? I've installed a tandem master cylinder also (Wilwood). These are for a 1969 vet which has the valve located on the drivers side already.

Asked by GARY on July 11, 2018

A:

I had to fabricate a bracket from a 90 degree piece of metal with two holes. One hole bolted to master cylinder, the other to the P- valve.

I purchased the item due to not being able to get an original one for my car. it bolted right up and worked from the beginning. tuning in the rear brakes was easy and adjusting it for different performance is extremely easy. would recommend to anyone

Great product works very good, only issue I had was finding the adapters to make it fit. if you buy get the proper adapters or new fittings all of the ports are 3/8-24 3/16 line. took me longer to find and get them than get the valve

Wilwood is a high-end brake company. This proportioning valve is a work of art. Summit sells it as cheap, or cheaper, than anyone else. I got it from online ordering, to my door, in ONE day!
