Mustang Residual Pressure Valve 10LB For Drum Brakes Red Anodized 1965-1973
10lb. Residual Pressure Valve for 1965-1973 Mustangs with Drum Brakes.
These valves are used in a drum brake system to prevent air from being ingested into the hydraulic system when you release the brake pedal. Typical wheel cylinder seals only seal when there is pressure behind them. Rapid release of the brake pedal creates a vacuum in the system which causes the seals to relax and air is ingested into the wheel cylinders. Maintaining 10 PSI in the system at all times prevents this.
