These brakes are slowing me down

Putting my 70 Chevelle SS back together and a lot of parts were missing when I got this thing. I need some help with the master cylinder to prop valve set up. I see the valve mounted below on the frame. Do I run lines from the master cylinder straight down to that valve, or is there a secondary valve that goes up next to the master cylinder? Also, any idea on where I can find these parts, or will I have to bend my own lines? HELP

Re: These brakes are slowing me down

Assuming you are using the stock setup, the rear line runs "directly" to the frame-mounted splitter. The front line runs through a hold-off / proportioning valve and then goes to the frame-mounted splitter. Note that there is an additional hold-off valve for the rear line that mounts on the frame near the rear axel.

If you don't have the 1970 Chevelle and El Camino Factory Assembly Manual GET ONE. It'll be the best 20 bucks you'll ever spend.
