I have a Tilton lever style proportioning valve installed going to the rear.

The question is which adjustment gives you more brakes?? When the lever is sticking up there is less spring pressure on the handle. As you move it 90 degrees the handle gets harder to move. Also the handle has arrows pointing to this (90 Deg) position and says "More Pressure".

The worst part is I could not tell any difference from one setting to the next ... I just plain didn't have much rear brake.

For more info my set up is like this: Master cylinder, 10 lb. residual, prop valve (in) then (out) to rear drums.

I did notice , however, that my rear brakes were not adjusted up very tight.

Again, which way do you adjustment to give more brakes?

THANKS

what causes your brakes to move? answer pressure if you have more pressure you should have more brakes. drums aren't a very good system for racing anyway and if they where not setup right they are gonna be bad regardless of how much pressure you put on um get them set right and you'll notice the difference
