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.

You are correct, the bleeders for the drums are on the reverse side of the backing plates. You’ll need to Jack the car up and crawl under to see them.

Make sure the adjustable valve is set to full open (least restriction) when you bleed.
