Brake line size??

I have a '39 Ford on an S10 chassis. I am using a '78 Malibu master cylinder and a Wildwood adjustable proportioning valve. I was going to use 3/16" line on the front brakes and 1/4" on rear. My proportioning valve has fittings for 3/16" only. What should I do? Is running the same size front and rear okay? Thanks in advance, Rod

3/16" for everything will be fine. that's what the S10 originally used as does most any vehicle

Bake line size has little to do with how your brakes operate...to a point. Go with 3/16" all around, that seems to be the standard.
