    Brakes Bleeding the brakes

    I installed an adjustable proportioning valve and now I need to bleed the brakes. Do I need to jack up all 4 sides of the car to do this? I can’t locate the bleeder valve on the rear drums so I feel like I really have to get under and behind them for it to work.

    Electrical What is this connector?

    What is this connector? It is on the drivers side right next to my power steering filler. It goes into a wiring harness. Also you might be able to see in the first picture, why is power steering fluid on top of the cap? This car has not been run in over 6 months. Is it leaking out somehow?

    I have noticed quite a bit of rust behind the wheel on the front driver-side but there is barely any on the passenger side? What could cause this? also, what other places should I look for rust?

    Brakes Proportioning valve internals not pulling out?

    I am currently trying to gut my proportioning valve and install an adjustable one and after I have finally gotten off the leaking bolt I am faced with this. I assumed when gutting, the internals would just pull out but this is stuck. I have pulled as hard as I can but to no avail. Any suggestions?

    83 5.0 swap

    I’m currently swapping a v6 mustang to a 5.0. I’m looking at buying a full parts car to rip apart rather than buying piece by piece and found a 78 in good shape. Wondering if everything from that gen swaps over to the fox or not?
