Melk, did you have to cut the black bracket that holds the prop valve on the MC?

Nevermind, got it.. I cut the lines already and just need to flare the ends and connect the front and rear lines to the prop valve. Now i just need an adapter or the rear hole that was plugged, would you happen to know the model of the adapter you used?

I haven't done it yet myself.

I know it's not hard at all but I'm just a little leery because its my dd and I haven't messed with flaring brake line before.

Got it all taken off and hooked back up straight from the brake booster to prop valve... tested and brakes great!!




Here are the parts i used from O'reilys auto parts to make the rear brake line fit into the rear hole that is plugged up on the prop valve.




All you need is a pipe cutter,flare tool the adapter parts above and some time.

Excellent.

When you unplug the covered port on the prop valve, does fluid leak out?

I'm just trying to picture this before I do it.

Thanks, there is no fluid that leaks out when you take the piece out, fluid leaks out a little bit when you remove the lines from the prop valve but very little.

Ok cool. See, I keep picturing it as draining the reservoir when you disconnect the lines.... but then it is a valve so I guess that makes sense.... It's closed until you press the brakes....

Anyone know what the method of operation is? (Of the prop valve). Electrical? Hydraulic pressure? There is a electrical plug on the prop valve, does this open /close the valve? Or is it a sensor of some sort?
