Checking Valve

It is a small olive shaped bush inside the outlet for the rear brakes. Do a Search on here on Check valve to get the info' on how to remove it. It has been covered hundreds of times. It might even be in Holdenpaedia.

check valve

Hi All

Please check with the brake specialists - i think as of the clear PBR master cylinder all that stuff is out the door

By late 70's the cup design in the rear wheel cylinders had changed, they no longer need some slight pressure form the master cylinder to keep then slightly expand / on

the extra wide lip of the new shape rubbers stops air leaks and does not retract as far as the older 60's 70's style

PS plus these clear PBR ones have inbuild pressure regulator

the check valve is not the

the check valve is not the brass olive seat ,the check valve is behind it and is small black rubber one way valve , you remove the brass seat by getting along self tapping screw with a flat washer on it screw it in to the brass seat a tiny bit then lever it out with 2 screw drivers , then remove the rubber check valve which maybe sitting inside the brass seat or be just behind it YOU THEM MUST RE FIT THE BRASS SEAT REMOVE THE SELF TAPPER AND RE FIT THE SEAT, WITH OUT THE CHECK VALE.

THE MASTER cylinder shown in the workshop manual as long been replaced with a a newer design , so dont worry if yours dose not look the same.

Thanks guys,

What exactly does the check valve do out of curiosity? Is it some sort of device that alters the pressure in the brake lines?

its a one way valve it

its a one way valve it restricts fluid from returning back up the line from the drum brakes , but with discs you need the fluid to be able to return back up the line or the brakes will drag on..
