'95 Dual Diaphragm Prop. Valve question...

Hi all...

I'm in the process of installing a 1995 YJ DD brake booster/proportioning valve in a CJ5 that I'm building.

Timatoe, on this forum, was kind enough to tell me which lines on this setup go to which wheels on the jeep.

Well, I have another question. The "rear" fitting (closest to the booster) has this cap / plug installed into the threaded hole.

I thought that a brake line installed into all the output holes of the P. valve.

This looks like a factory plug. Could it be that the front brakes were only fed with one line, and used a junction block ("splitter"), like the rear brakes use?

Here are some pics...











Anybody have any experience with something like this?

Thanks.

Rich

If it is just a stock YJ prop valve then you will use the plugged hole. In the factory application there would not be a split for the front brakes.

Thanks, Rust...

I bought this unit used, then cleaned and painted it. So...it IS stock. Why would there NOT be a line coming out of there when it was on the original Jeep?

This plug thing confuses me...

Yeah, a line should go there. Maybe whoever had that before was using some different type of setup????

OK...the consensus has it...I'm putting a front brake line there. I just wanted to make sure that there wasn't an option, here.

Thanks!
