I had been thinking of a rear axle off a tone wheel equipped rear axle 
off a Chevy light truck and use the modulator only the back brake line 
in place of the proportioning valve.

As an interim I am fitting a Summit Racing variable proportioning valve 
to stop rear wheel lockup under heavy braking when lightly loaded. This 
is on a 1983 Jeep Wagoneer.
