Did you bleed the brakes? The pin on the proportioning vavle should be held open during bleeding.
Yes, how do you hold the pin open? Have never heard of that before & can it be reset at this point?
You can have a helper hold it open. There is a tool for that, use to be a tool. I believe in the past, I have used a small vice-grip to hold the pin. It's been a while since I worked on that model year.
Is the pin in the center of the brass plug on the lft side? There is not enough to get ahold of. If I were to loosen the plug & pull it will it center the valve? They have been bled several times & all lines are fresh fluid & no apparent air in system, just no pressure to the fronts. Does the valve need pwr? I dont care about the light, hasnt worked in years.
It's been a while, I'd have to look at it. That little pin, you either push it in or pull it out. I can't remember? I tried looking up that valve on an inline partsbook, couldn't find it. I thought maybe looking at the valve would jog my memory.
