1979 LSPV vs 1980 LSPV
« on: Jan 28, 2011, 03:29:46 PM »
Hey guys i got a a LSPV from a 1980 pickup thinking it would be the same as one on a 1979. Well the one i got has an extra brake fitting yet the one that was on my truck has only two!

Is there any way i can use this without spending any extra money?

If not im just going to eliminate the valve and just run some rubber brake line and connect the two lines.

Nope.  You gotta spend money.  I would not advise connecting the two lines, cause unless you know, don't mess with your brakes.  On the three line one, there is some return to your front.

My advice is just get a prop valve and put it inline on the 79, adjust it manually.  Whats $30, compared to your life.

the 79 and 80 should be the same. stock first gen lspv one have 2 lines in and out. i believe the 3 line one started in 84. could be wrong but my 81 only has 2 lines.

Just remove the lsv from the loop.  Ive had mine removed for 3-4 years without a single issue.   Heck some jackass slammed on the brakes in front of me a few days ago, which made me slam on mine.  Truck stopped great and I have fj80 rotors big calipers and dual booster setup.  On 1st gens its always a 2 line lsv and above post is right in reguards to the 3rd line in 84.
