Is it the same for all fords for those years. I have a buddy who has quite a few falcons. I can get over there tomorrow and take a picture and post it up for you if it would help.

those are real simple systems. the side of the master cylinder closest to the booster is for the rear brakes and feed the back of the proportioning valve, then one line out to the rear axle.

the front brakes are fed by the front half of the master and then into the proportioning valve. some valves have one line in and one out to a splitter. other ones have 2 lines out, one to each wheel in front.

its simple until you get up front...lol the 2 different blocks throw me off because you have lines that come from the master cylinder to the distribution block then on the 67-70disc setups, from the distibution block to a hold off valve, pics would help put alot, or if he is close to livonia and wouldn't mind me taking a look at one that would be a great help
