I'm working on getting all of the parts together to install front discs on my Fairlane. So far I have everything except the proportioning valve. The way I see it I have 3 options. The only thing is I don't know for sure which ones will even work. Here they are,

1) Try and find one from a disc brake car of the era. I know this will not be easy and could be costly. I would like to have this all done very soon.

2) Get one from a more modern disc brake car. Problem is I don't what would work. Any suggestions of what is known to work and possibly available new would be greatly appreciated.

3) The car now has a dual resivoir master (I already have a disc brake master to replace it) and a proportioning valve (more of a splitter really) for drum brakes. I could put an adjustable proportioning valve on the line to the rear brakes. I'm not sure if or how well this will work, but it would be the easiest.

If anyone has any suggestions on what they did or what will work I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
B-loose

I would go with option three or you could call Master power brake company and see if they make something that would work.

The adjustable proportioning valve in the rear line was the easiest for me.
I used the wilwood valve.
