Wilwood 260-13783 Blue 2 PSI Residual Pressure Valve with Fittings
These in-line pressure valves retain a minimum brake line pressure to help eliminate excessive pedal travel in disc brake systems. Residual pressure valves are made from billet aluminum with 1/8" npt female threads for the inlet/outlet and color coded for easy identification. Ideal for drag racing, circle track, street rod and many off road applications.
The two pound valve is used in disc brake applications where the master cylinder is mounted below the horizontal plane of the calipers and fluid drain back occurs from gravity and vibration, thereby causing excessive caliper piston retraction and a longer brake pedal stroke. The minimal two pound residual pressure prevents fluid from flowing back without causing the brakes to drag.
- Inlet Size: 1/8-27 NPT
- Inlet Fit: 3/8-24 IF Female
- Outlet Size: 1/8-27 NPT
- Outlet Fit: 3/8-24 IF Female
- Rate: 2 lbs.
