Help on ford brakes

I have a 69 Ford F100 Good Humor Truck. I was told everything suspension is F250.

From LMC truck I bought 2wd Wheel cyl and brake master. I have a brake booster. All drums.

I can not get the lines bled. Do I have this set up correct?
A) the master came with a new push rod. Do I need to install this?
B) is the front most master port for the rear or the front?
C) one line has a big 1/2 inch or so 3/16 line fitting, the other has a smaller one with an 1/2 inch adapter. Which port gets the adapter and which gets the direct line. Does anyone make new fittings this size?
D) on the dist block, on the front side, is the top most port to the front or rear?

Thanks for any help.

Someone in the CT Chapter might be able to help you, but I cant. You may have more luck posting in the 67-72 Ford F100 and larger forums. Good Luck!

Thanks,

I am going to check the proportion valve, maybe I plumbed it up wrong.

Hi there JChimbolo:

I'm officially welcoming you to the Connecticut Chapter.

Hope all goes well with your ice-cream truck's brake repairs.

Done

Thanks, I did. I needed a spacer for some reason as the plunger was too short.
