      I would never repair any thing that if it was to fail you could die, suspension, break line,
      and so on, its just better to replace it! probably wouldn't save much money even of you could repair it but that's just my opinion.

        A lot of people have rebuilt brake calipers, wheel cylinders, master cylinders, etc for generations now.

        If youre not comfortable with it, don't do it. Theres plenty of change to be saved by fixing things on your own rather than replacing parts. As a bonus, when you follow the "repair, dont replace" tenet, you get to learn exactly how things work/interact, which is especially desirable information when diagnosing difficult problems.

        Unless youre following the new "diagnostic procedure" of tossing your wallet at the problem until it goes away or you get within 80% of the resale value of thr vehicle before giving up on it, in which case, please replace as much as possible. Less the new owner will have to worry about.

              I also assumed prop valve. I dont believe there is an available rebuild method or kit for them.

                  If it's broken, it is going to leak You can buy cheap (notice the word choice) universal proportioning valves like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Ad...636#vi-content
                  In any case, if you look for it online use the work "brake", it will give better results. Good luck!
