    I have a 95 hatch CX, i did almost the complete rear disk swap, the only thing i did not change was the proportioning valve...

    i got all my parts from a 97 gsr (complete rear disk brake assembly and e-brake), i also replaced the brake booster and the master cylinder

    i need to know what kind of proportioning valve i need because my brakes tend to lock up, the brake pedal gets extremely hard n i have to pull over n kinda pump the pedal till it frees up and i can start driving again,... it sucks bcuz it makes my engine overheat n i cant even drive my car.

    someone help plz...im guessing is the prop valve that needs to be replaced but im not sure....

    thank!

    The prop valve is not causing your problems. The correct prop valve would be one from any non abs 4 wheel disk civic or integra from 88-01. Not sure what is causing the locking up. Maybe the brake booster or master cyl went bad? Stay off the road till you fix it.
