First, thanks to PonyDoc on his reply to my last question.
Is the proportioning valve and what I consider the distribution block the same? The distribution block is the brass block that has lines from the Master Cylinder and lines out to the two front and rear brake lines. Also has wire plug for brake light. If I pull this block from the donor car is that all, or do I need to look for a separate valve? Thanks in advance for any and all help. Charlie

Charlie,
Some distribution blocks have the proportioning valve built into them and others don't. Dist blocks with prop valves built in usually have a small button like rod surrounded by a rubber gasket sticking out of the end of the dist block.

Those without a prop valve usually have a seperate prop valve that is cylindrical and in placed somewhere in the brake line that feeds the rear brakes.

If you have a Ford manual I suggest you look there. My '67 manual shows a nice cross section view of a non-prop valve dist block.

Hope that helps!
Brian

I have a '69 that was 4 wheel drums.
The distribution blocks is just that, a distribution block.
I put a wilwood proportioning valve under the rear seat when I converted to 4-wheel disks.
