Unless you're doing a restoration, ditch the whacky and troublesome factory prop valve and go aftermarket.

Here it is mounted... and I have a bad attitude about any kind of plumbing be it automotive or residential. .. totally detest it.

He did fabricate the bracket himself but it is now offered by Wilwood for an extra $32 on top of the $84 price of the proportioning valve.

thanks. while I'm in there, looks like I'll have to fabricate some new brakelines - ugh. Do you recommend just getting a roll of tubing and flaring them myself, or finding pre-cut? seems bending & flaring myself could result in a cleaner install.

so then, steel or cupro-nickel?

suggestions?

You can get a mini bender at HF for a few bucks. Parts stores like Advance have pre cut sections of hard line for a few bucks a foot. Pretty simple if you know end sizes you need. I reused some of my ends.

. You will have to flare end if you custom cut. HF has those too.

You know what my answer is.. fab 'em up! It's a skill worth learning IMO.

Speedway Motors is a good place to hit up for tubing and fittings. Their $10 cutter is what I use.. Start reading this for more info...: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/11...l#post13542395

Using a zippy disc on a grinder is actually considered to be better. The tube cutter hardens the end of it, often causing unwanted results when you go to flare it. Zippy cut, run a drill bit through the inside, file down the outside, then flare. You should get smooth, consistent results.

That number is for a 1976 F250 trailer special. Front Disc, rear brake, 8500 GVR
1956 thru today: Numbers marked on parts are casting or ID engineering numbers, not part numbers.

D4TZ-2B257-A .. Brake Pressure Differential Valve / Marked w/ID engineering number: D4TA-2B328-A1A or A2A or D5TA-2B328-CA or C1A or C2A

Applications: 1974/79 F250 2WD with 6900, 7500, 8100 lb. GVW's with dual piston caliper front disc brakes / 1974/78 F350 / 1975/79 E250/350 / 1979 F350 2WD

Most people wouldn't say anything because they have no parts catalogs. So they have no way to look up the part numbers and their correct applications.
