69 Cougar Break question

I'm not getting fluid to the rear brakes. Does anyone know where the
proportioning valve and the metering valves are located? Which one controls
the distribution of fluid between the front and rear? I took the line loose
from the master cylinder and I have flow coming out there. I have power
brakes with disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear. Thanks in
advance for any input.

Re: 69 Cougar Break question

Are these original brakes or aftermarket brakes?

You should have a combination valve located on the frame
below the master cylinder. It controls proportioning,
failure warning and distribution. They were bad about
freezing if the fluid was not periodically flushed. Another
problem is the valve needs to be centered after the brakes
are flushed or bleed. Do you have a light on the dash
illuminated? If so your job to center the valve and retrun
flow is simple. You need to have someone gently apply the
brakes while you have a bleeder valve open until the light
goes out. Immediately stop applying the brake and close the
valve. If you cann put the light out by doing this on one
end of the car, go to the other end and try it. Usually,
the las bleeder you opened will cause the valve to close off
that system as it should. The idea is to go bach to the
other end of the car and open a bleeder whil cracking the
bleeder to center it again. That will restore fluid
pressure to all wheels in most cases.

Good luck
