PURCHASED THIS VALVE 6-24-13 INSTALLED 7-18-13 STARTED LEAKING BRAKE FLUID 11-25-13 THEY SAID ONLY HAD 30 DAY WARRANTY
The electrical connection on the new unit is a one wrie set-up, meaning that it grounds through it's body into the frame. the set up on my 83 CJ-7 is a two wire set-up. This means the switch wire DOES NOT WORK! The plug (or coupler) does NOT fit! I just left it off, so now, I do NOT have a "Low Hydraulic Pressure Warning Light" No biggy for me, as it is just an old jeep and if the pedal goes to the floor, I will immeadiately know that my brake pressure has been lost, LOL!
I have a 77 cj5 that came stock with drum/drum brakes. I upgraded the complete front axle with a donor 78 Dana 30 that has disc brakes. Will I have to change the proportioning valve to accomodate the front disc brakes or will I be fine just swapping the master cylinder to a disc/drum unit?
Asked by smoke from pa on
Smoke, It is recommended to replace the proportioning valve as the fluid pressure between front and rear is different between drum and disc. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

I understand this will not work in my 81 CJ8? What is it about it that makes it not work? Can I get adapters or differently threaded lines or something?? thank you, Alan

Hello Allen, The Inline Tube Brake Proportioning Valve difference is the brake switch. One is a 2 wire and one is a 1 wire. You can use your existing switch in this proportioning valve and it should work fine on your 81. Hope that helps.

Hey Mad Dog, the Inline Tube Brake Proportioning Valve would not work for your and at this time we do not have one that will. Thanks for your question.
