    I'm sure this has been worn out but I can't find it here so...66 Coronet with single resivour MC. Got a set of 71& up b n E body brakes, I have both large and small Master Cylinders and both bypass the front brakes. I did put a 68/69 style junction block. I've been told I need to add a perportion valve?
    Any help is appreciated

      In your second picture I suggest swapping sides on the calipers. You have the bleeders at the bottom and you will never be able to get the air out of the system.. Bleeds need to be at the top of the caliper..

          Unless you added them afterwards you are missing the caliper positioning springs/clips.
          They go on the caliper pin bolts.

          I called a couple times with no answer, emailed him and he got back to me the same day. Try that route, i told him what parts i had and what i wanted to do, a couple questions later and my parts were in the mail.

          Cass is a stand up guy and highly recommended. He knows his stuff and well known. He might just be "out of the office" due to the virus thing. Here is the proportioning valve from him and used on many years, sorry for the blur picture. Cheers
