Erm, I have it on passenger side (LHD) or the gasoline fill side :). It isn't on the brake itself, but look where the brakehose goes from that side. It is attached right next to the gasoline hose and the panhard rod is connected to it. The panhard rod adjusts the pressure. If I'm thinking the same valve... :)

The regulating valves for the brakes is on the rear of the car if it's an early one that has load dependant rear brakes. There is a link to the axle with those as well.

Other than that the valve can be on the master cylinder, or anywhere along the brake lines.

thanks rich, it is an early car so i am quite sure there's no valve on rear and nothing to the description from haynes so maybe further forward on brake lines,.,,.thanks' kev
