Where to get Brake T

Where can I get a brake T to replace my proportioning valve?

I know it's a VW part. Anyone have a part number handy?

What year VW and what model?

Thanks,

Got mine here:

Ten bucks I think. It may not have been listed on the web, but they identified it when I phoned.
Any VW Bug place s/b able to provide it.

I got mine from CNC Inc. They are in San Diego. I paid $13.50 plus $4.35 in shipping. It is a beautiful little annodized piece of hardware. Mine came in red. The guy there was real nice on the phone too... 619-275-1663

Karl;

I would think that there have to be Aftermarket VW parts places in your area (look up automobile parts in the yellow pages)

Seems too simple, huh? Perhaps there aren't any. Maybe an assumption on my part.

I got several at a salvage yard. Early VW bus and Beetles rear line splitter. The later vans have a fitting for two steel lines and one hose. I used those for my BWM 2002 front caliper conversion.

BTW; I think I paid $ 1.00 for 4 fittings. I had to pull em though. Bring a 10mm the fitting is bolted to the chassis.

Here's a pic of the brake "T" I sourced from a bus. There's two -one for the front, one for the back.
I can't read the stamp on the side and it doesn't have a part number on it. -Hopefully if you print this out and show it to the shop they'll know what you're after.

Question

Is there a benefit to replacing the prop valve with a tee? Will the braking be different? Just a dumb question I guess.

Top of the page, search button. Search 914/914-6 forum for "brake tee". Lot's of good information that's been covered in the past.

Just to ask another dumb question, you dont need the prop valve in a plain jane 914. Why would porsche not use the TEE originally? Im about to replace my 17mm MC with a 19mm PP one along with new lines, if the 10 buck TEE works Ill get rid of the prop valve. Also how haed is it replace the steel brakelines.

Careful Ruddyboy!

The stock prop valve reduces the braking power of the rears to prevent potentially disastrous rear lockup. Most guys eliminate it when they upgrade the front brakes to uh, proportionally, more powerful 911 front brakes. If you have stock fronts, leave the proportioning valve in.
