There was an article in Mustang Monthly or Mustang Illustrated a short while back that covered detailing the 65-66 proportioning valve. I've searched all my copies and can't find it. Does anyone remember which issue? Thanks!

Hmmmm. I recall an article on master cylinders but not the valve. I always thought it was supposed to be a natural cast color.

the case should be painted with a grey paint and the adjusting threaded thing is cad plated and the locking nut is gold cad. There is a black rubber band and then the locking clip on the end is bare steel

Is that a cast iron gray color or the actual color gray? What are your recommended options for rebuild of the valve?

it's a grey color, not cast ,like a regular grey primer with a semi-gloss to it.

you can probably rebuild the valve, but only if the cylinder is free of gouges or rust pits. Just take it apart and evaluate it first.

If you have to, you can have the valve rebuilt professionally and they can re-sleeve it. Never had this done but heard it was possible.
