New Guy w/Brake Issue...

The '85 110 we have is leaking brake fluid out of the brake pressure warning sender at the bottom of the brake pressure relief valve which is bolted to the firewall under the clutch MC. I replaced the pressure warning sender as I thought it was the problem but now the new one seems to be leaking enough to make the pedal go to the floor. I thought this sender was bolted to a brake manifold but I guess it's actually got some kind of a bias valve in it. Could it be getting stuck and allowing pressure to force fluid out of the pressure warning sender "thingy"? All of the brake lines are dry. Does the truck need this manifold/pressure valve? Could I run a bias valve instead?

Thanks!

Is it drums or disks in the back?


And does it have a bike rack for the ten speed...

Bias valve would work, but I'm sure others will chime in...any plans to put disks on the rear? If so, a proportioning valve from a d1 would work in that case.

2nd the D1 valve. It would be considered an upgrade too!

No plans to put discs on the back. I was wondering if I could get a bias valve... I'll look for some. Any recommendations for where to find one? Summit? Jegs?

I found some bias/proportioning valves on Summit Racing. They all have either single inlet/single outlet or dual inlet/three outlet. I guess I could block off an outlet?
