FTI pg valve body
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:11:23 PM »
I have a FTI built valve body for powerglide.Setup for hi/lo transbake also pro brake.To clarify hi/lo is where you can leave off transbrake in low(regular) or if want can leave off brake in high gear. Advantages are basically its a option if want or need. Pro brake reacts quicker,but does require TB button to be held while using reverse. Normally cost right at 300 asking$220 shipped to your door. Used very little. I just want to get same  thing but aluminum version just for 8 lbs savings  and spend more money doing so.

I think there was I thread on this but too lazy to look it up.
Any idea what the reaction time difference is between leaving in high vs. low?
I realize there's a lot of variables just trying to get an idea.
I,m interested just not sure its the way I want to go.
Is the soleniod included?

Is this a complete unit? Solenoid, solenoid valve, etc. ? If so I'm interested.

complete valve body with transbrake valve no solenoid. I guess it you want solenoid I can throw it in for 50 extra. I know valve body goes for 400 from fti with solenoid so still 150 cheaper and Less than 50 runs on it.

If using dealy box most have a timer that keeps from accidental engagement of transbake.You can wire switch in line to kill TB button power also. Other than that I guess keep away from button.
