its a brake bais valve that you need does same sort of think as that hanging off your spare wheel well but is manual and can be put else where.something like this

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Brake-Bias-Proportioning-Valve-Alloy-Anodised-Black-/270601837791?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3f01205cdf

basically you just adjust it so that you have the correct pressure going to the rear brakes so they dont lock up under brake

id just buy the bits and take it to a garage then, if you google or check ebay for brake pressure regulators or even adjustable bias control valve then you will see plenty of them for sale
