Brake Fitting size needed
#1
My 71 has manual Drums.  I have had hell with the stock distribution block leaking.  Ive put in 2 repair kits and it still leaks from time to time.  So I just want to junk the old original Distribution block and put in a new style aftermarket unit.  I dont know what size all the fittings are though on the stock unit.

I was hoping to avoid having to make new lines from the Master to the Proportioning valve and especially avoid having to put new fittings on the front and rear lines.

I want something like this....

This is a wilwood 260-11179 .  It has 3/8-24 IF fittings.  

So any help yall can give me on the line fitting sizes would be great!

Dont quote me on it but I think the adapter I have is 3/16 inverted flare female to 1/4" inverted flare male.
The lines on the car are stock... but this is a disk brake car. The only custom lines were the ones from the tee and the prop valve to the master cylinder.

Going with the layout I did allowed the prop valve and the tee to be mounted in the same footprint as the old combo valve.

I cant find just a distribution block for Drums, it doesnt appear anyone makes them. So I want to go with adjustable rear so I can set it all manually. I dont see any reason it won't work on Drums. I am eventually going to do 4 wheel disc, but not for some time.

Thanks for that info, that at least is a start.

Looking at that pic you posted above tells me its very likely the stock lines are 3/8-24 IF so that part will swap right over. Thats close enough for me to go ahead and buy the valve.
