Default Proportioning Valve ??

Do a 1989 BII have a Proportioning Valve? If so, where is it? Picture of it?

I was able to dig up an 89 BII manual and there is no proportioning valve. Because of the RABS system eliminating rear brake lock-up, a prop. valve isn't really necessary.

It DEFINITELY has one. ABS/Prop valve...2 bolts hold it to the fame via bracket. There's a large plug on it as well....It's right in front of the high pressure fuel pump on the frame.

That sounds like the rear antilock brake hydraulic control unit.

That's what I was trying to say in my first post. It's all in the RABS valve. I assumed the OP was asking about a separate prop. valve besides the RABS valve. Sorry for any confusion.
