Any particular order ?

I'm in the process of installing the rear brakelines on my '41 Chevy. I'm putting in a residual valve, proportioning valve and a low pressure brake light valve.

Is there any particular sequence that I should observe ? I've seen a number of configurations. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure of the low pressure brake light valve. Do you mean low pressure switch? For the remainder - master cylinder then residual pressure valve then the proportioning valve.

Thanx for the quick reply. Yep it is the low pressure switch, it also operates brake lights.

I think that they suggest you put the brake light switch as close to the master as possible. That is for an inline switch. You can also use a mechanical switch that is activated by the brake pedal assembly.
