Assuming that you're talking about this CPP kit ...

You would totally remove any existing proportioning valve and route one line to the front disc brakes, and the other line to the rear. Right?

No instructions with the kit?

Unfortunately ... you have it plumbed incorrectly.

I believe that the source of your confusion is that your '64 was originally equipped with, and plumbed for, a single-outlet master cylinder.

Anyway, it's really very simple ... especially if your car is now front disk / rear drum brakes.

1.) The front outlet port on the m/cyl, and the 2 front outlets on the combo valve are for the front disk brakes.

2.) The rear outlet on the m/cyl as well as the 3rd outlet on the combo valve are used to send juice to the rear brakes.
It's recommended to plumb with 3/16" steel lines for the front, and 1/4" for the rear.

3.) You have 2 options when it comes to plumbing the front brakes.

3a.) Use BOTH of the front outlets, and run seperate, individual lines ... one to each of the front flex hoses.

3b.) Plug one of the outlets on the combo-valve, run a single line down to the frame level (higher than the level of the caliper, though.) and then TEE the line over to each of the flex hoses.

4.) You will plumb the rear with a single 1/4" steel line that runs from the combo valve to the rear flex hose. The rear hose uses a (usually built-in) tee to send the brake fluid to both rear wheel cylinders at the same time and pressure.

==============
I wasn't able to find the specific instructions for this on CPP's website, but was able to come up with a very similar, if not identical combination valve

#VL3360K

and instruction sheet on mpbrakes.com

Eaton-Weatherhead PDF catalog

Inverted Flare fittings on pages 31 through 35.
Other brake-specific fittings on pages 123 through 125.
Hopefully you will find the components that you are looking for.

Solo... maybe its just me, maybe its just the angle of the picture or maybe I am overly picky but the bends and the routing of the lines doesnt look to hot. It even looks like your front line has a kink in it ? maybe its just the lighting dont know... figured i would mentione it anyway.
