1955-57 CHEVY MASTER CYLINDER BRAKE KIT
OPTIONAL BRAKE KIT
ADJUSTING THE PROPORTIONING VALVE will give you the braking balance between the front discs and the rear drums or rear discs. Turn the knob clockwise to decrease pressure to the rear. The proportioning valve has about 8 turns lock-to-lock. Start (adjusting) with the knob in the middle. This will be about 4 turns from either end. Connect the proportioning valve to the rear port shown in the photo. This places the proportioning valve in the line to the rear drum brakes. The banjo fitting for the front banjo style hoses are in the calipers. All kit components are available separately.
CONNECTING THE BRAKE SYSTEM
NEXT, install the 60-inch brake line in the “OUT” port of the proportioning valve and route it to the right side of the frame just behind the rear of the upper A-arm. Follow the old brake line path to the right side of the frame. Find the “T” fitting and remove the original rear line and plug it with the 1/4-inch inverted flare plug provided. Next, attach the new line to the rear line with the union provided. In review, the front line of the master cylinder should go to the front brakes and the rear line from the master cylinder should be going to the rear brakes.
