    Hey, I’m running a custom brake setup and I’m needing some advice on which valves I’m needing to put in line to make sure it works properly. I’m running disc brakes both front and rear and a Wilwood master cylinder. It also came with a proportioning valve. Am I needing any additional valves to make the system work well? I know that these cars came with multiple other options for ensuring disk and drum brakes worked well together however, I’m not sure if any valves are recommended since I’m running disc on all four corners.

    I’ll be bending and making my own brake lines so I want to make sure I’m building it as close to perfect as I can.

    Any thoughts, pictures, or links would be greatly appreciated.

    You can run a proportioning valve to adjust front/rear bias but no other valves should be required.
