Thanks Bryan :)

I'm pretty used to getting called man or dude since there are so few women interested in cars, much less working on their own cars & on car forums in general.
It used to kind of piss me off but it doesn't anymore since I've been on one forum or another since '99.
I am an Alltrac Goddess & also the one & only female Mod here. I work alongside my husband on all our cars.
Nice to meet you :)

Eff...

Just when I thought I was ready, I realized I don't have a 3-way valve.

Bryan - Whenever you're ready feel free to update, add more pics, add the wiring removal to the How To so we can get it as complete as possible.

Will do!

As I will be making my own lines with the AGS NiCopp lines, I think adding to the existing write-up will make this a comprehensive How-To.

What sucks is I doubt Toyota carries the 3-way valve on hand...it's only 13 bucks, but I hate waiting a week for it to ship in. I may just pick one up from the junk yard...

I think we got ours from the junkyard too. Just give it a good clean with brake cleaner & it's ok to use.

I just wanted to give a heads up to you all for clarification.

The part number for the P-Valve on the ABS unit/brick is NOT the same as the non-ABS P-Valve located on the firewall.

The first 5 digits are the same, but actually looking up the part numbers and entering them into 1sttoyotaparts.com they come out to be different parts with two different prices.

I'm not sure what to conclude, but I can only be safe and assume these are not the same parts. Therefore, getting a non-ABS P-Valve, new or used, is going to be your best bet.

As stated, your other options are using the ABS P-Valve anyway, or going with an aftermarket piece like an adjustable Wilwood.

I am going to hopefully find a 3-way at the junkyard. If I can't find a non-ABS car, I'll just get an adjustable wilwood and a brand new OEM 3-way (they are cheap).

Here's a pic to illustrate.

Here is what I did and it works:
There are 2 exits from master. Front top exit goes to a T which splits to front brakes.
Side exit goes to Wilwood adjustable and then to T (where P valve used to be) and splits to rear brakes.

I've tried to use non ABS P valve toyota but not celica and it didn't work.
So if you guys do go P valve route, you should get the Celica specific part.

I'm not sure exactly how it's all set up, or even what goes on in the pvalve. So correct me if I'm wrong!

The way the non-ABS is set up is that there appears to be two lines coming out of the master that feed INTO the pvalve. One of the lines, however, T's off to feed directly to the driver front brake without going through the pvalve.

At the pvalve, there are three other lines. One goes to the passenger front brake. The other two go to both rear brakes.

If we did the setup you did above, there are no issues with changing up the bias on anything regarding the front brakes?

I am not sure exactly what goes on in the pvalve, if there are just holes and tunnels, or actualy hardware with spring rates, etc. to adjust the bias of front/rear or even left/right (i know this sounds ridiculous, but never know i guess lol).

For the price of a new oem celica non-abs pvalve, I may as well get the wilwood.

Bryan,

If you or anyone else is removing ABS and will be upgrading the brakes, I think adjustable P valve is a good idea at least this is my opinion.
This is what I have Wilwood (260-8419) might be outdated part as I did it like 8 years ago. There is also Tilton which I believe a bit more expensive but they had metric version (makes it a bit easier) but it was on back order so I settled with wilwood.

As per your description, which is correct I have also attached a picture of the lines (unfortunately RHD so might be a bit confusing)
0b0a6b9d6e34281d7c16cb1e4f8d5488.png


In OEM set up as can be seen above there is a T adaptor fitting and P valve. In my set up there are 3 adaptor fittings. T adaptor (OEM), another T adaptor (Toyota) to split supply to rear brakes and adaptor fitting (Toyota) to connect OEM front lines that were connected through P valve before. So instead of 1 P valve as per OEM set up, I have 2 adaptors one is 3 way and one is 2 way.
The Wilwood P valve is inline before T adaptor which splits the rear right and left brakes adjusted to decrease pressure to rear brakes to avoid locking up of rear brakes before the front ones under hard or sudden braking.
The 2 way adaptor that connects 2 front lines could be eliminated from my set up by using the flexible brake lines you have asked for feedback on the forum, in other words you could create a line that would go directly to the 1st original T adaptor fitting by the master.

Hope that helps.

does anyone know if i can use the P valve and T from a 6th gen Celica ST? I have access to every part. will the lines work too if I tweak them a little bit?

Re: [How to] Remove the ABS from a ST185

Here is the 6th gen, I pulled the engine out today, It looks like I can use these parts.

Has anyone done this on a RHD car? Looking at the diagrams some of the stuff may be different for a RHD car.
