    Mystery valves

    Any idea what these are?, found them in a box of bits that came with the car, they look like brake valves but not sure how they would adjust?, https://photos.app.goo.gl/FKVTUoDConMLKxKPA

    They do indeed look like brake proportioning valves.
    I guess you could use them on anything, but not for IVA as they're adjustable.
