For those of you running headers, have you had any problems with the proportioning valve? I bled my breaks before I took my car out for it's first drive in 19 years. The breaks were fine before I left but about 5 mins into driving it I noticed the breaks were getting spongy. I know the valve is way to close to the headers and I will be removing the headers in the future but for now I need to know if any has encountered this problem and had to relocate their valve and if so to where. I have attached a pic of my set up as I bought the car.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yepper, guilty as charged on my 69. I moved mine from the inside of the driver side frame rail to the top of it.
Also, unless 68's and 69's are different, that's not a proportioning valve. It's a distribution block. There's a plunger in the middle between the two chambers that slides to one side if the pressures aren't equal and activates the brake warning light.

Yes Sir you are correct. In the future I will be converting the car to 4 will disc and I'll be using the Ram Air exhaust manifolds to help with clearance and fitment issues.

Thanks for the help Bear.
