Re: Brake Proportioning Valve

Also a further note: The valve found at the left rear side of the floorboard on the 67 and mounted on the distribution block on the 68-up cars is not a proportioning valve at all. It's a check valve. It simply holds pressure in the line after the pedal is released. If I remember correctly it's 10LB....

Re: Ignition resistor wire

It would depend on if the vehicle has a tach. That changes where it should be pulled from. Now if the fact I commented on the subject because I have actually done it that would be your issue. Perhaps I should just stop commenting here period.

Re: Question: Best Product to Replicate Factory Undercoating

Re: Ignition resistor wire

The 12 volts go to the red wire on the ignitor, not to the coil. The black wire from the ignitor goes to the coil. There is no need for a relay.

The Chinese Virus is going to wipe out the economy? Not a chance. This isn't the Bubonic plague. No worse than SARS. It was brought under control, as shall this be.

Re: Ignition resistor wire

I wouldn't say "confused" but Bill will tell you the same thing I will. They know nothing about the current sensing tachometers Ford used. I think a few people have tried to assist them. It's simple once you've done it...... It's really a simple procedure period. It's a matter of running a single 14...

There is no real mystery here. It's super simple to do and worth the effort.
