Violated my own rules!
Teh COMPLETE brake setup, master cylinder, front and rear brakes was from the
EXCEPT for the lines and this 'isolator/valve"..
I see no evidence of fluid leaks and the rear calipers are relatively new.
What i want to know is how to reset the isolator shuttle, if that's what it
I have the SSBC kit in my 88, all they did there was remove the spring from
the proportioning valve, assuming the isolator valve works along the same
principals I don't think that could be your problem. You might need to
adjust the rear pads closer to the rotor. You do that by taking a special
tool that fits into the piston and then screwing, or unscrewing, as the case
my be, until there is just barely enough clearance to put the calipers back
on. Once adjusted you need to remember to use your handbrake religiously to
keep the pads properly adjusted. Buy or rent the proper tool to do this,
the "one size fits all" tool sold at discount auto parts stores in
worthless. The purpose of this set up is to keep the handbrake properly
adjusted as the rear pads wear. You are also going need this handy little
gismo when it comes time for pad replacement.
Do you get any fluid to the rear? If not sounds like you do need a reset.
Try bleeding the fronts to reset it. (use the somebody pushes on the pedal
method) You could also bleed at the valve if its easy to get to. It sounds
like that piston in the valve needs to be reset (centered).
