I need a proportioning valve for my 86 F150. I don't want to dig through a bone yard for a 25 year old brake part that is probably in as bad a shape as mine. I'd like a new one or at least rebuilt if somone knows a supplier. Tried auto parts stores and eBay motors with not luck.

(sigh) You tried autoparts stores, looked on ebay...found nothing, but you didn't try the obvious.
E4TZ2B257F .. Brake Differential Proportioning Valve / Available from Ford.
I was saving the dealer as a last resort because of the sticker shock. I did find it at LMC, but they want $300.00 too. Ouch! I took the proportioning valve off, removed the piston and spring then cleaned it inside and out with Q tips and old tooth brushes. I blasted it with compressed air and ran brake fluid through all the ports until it ran clear. It was full of crap being 25 years old. I reinstalled it and added clean brake fluid and then bled the system. The brakes are now working good. I was really trying to avoid buying from the dealer because of the cost because the owner has just replaced the front rotors, pads, calipers, master cylinder and RR wheel cylinder. I didn't think she could afford an additional $300.00 for a proportioning valve after all the other parts she paid for recently.
