I have replace all brake pads and seals pus master cylinder and no brake pedal. This adjustable valve allows you to fine tune the amount of pressure your rear brakes recieve in order to prevent rear wheel lockup. You will notice the rubber grommet in the firewall damaged by the small fire from the previous owner. There are limits to what you can use, but the smaller bore size will make less effort and more travel than a larger bore size. Though it's mnemonics are useless, and 'one lot' is it's most useful one, it's just here to help.
