Default Deleting Brake Distribution Block.

As I'm wrapping up the install on my ATS brake upgrade on my 244, I noticed the distribution block was damp. Upon attempting to break free one of the brake lines the entire port broke off the block. I sat there staring at it in frustration, but then realized this is a great time to delete this dreaded device.

What is the best way to replace it? Adjustable proportioning valves are fairly inexpensive.

I assume the dual inlet, triple outlet setup on the one linked above is for both front calipers and a single line to the rear? Or is there a more simple setup?

Fairly new to the "performance braking" field. This is a street car that is driven spiritedly through long, twisty country roads.

Thanks.

Put a block from a 91 or newer block in. You can probably delete the portioning valves if yoyleft the stock 240 calipers in the rear. I did not on mine but probably should have.

It has to be a '91 only, non-ABS junction block. No sensor to leak, but it still has all of the ports for the 2-line front calipers.

You can still get them new and they aren't that expensive.

I'm thinking probably not. I'm seeing it as NLA at every usual Volvo part source.

We've had to get Volvo to reinstate several part numbers that were discontinued even though they still have stock in Sweden. GCP shows that there's 90 of them currently in stock.
