brake lines

Hi I am doing a disc brake conversion on a 71 nova, need help on the brake lines, should i use 3/16 or 1/4 inch tubing? This is the OD and it is hard to measure the OD with the flare and there is not much difference between the two. Anyone know what the original size was for power front disc and rear drum cars? Thanks

When you go to disc/drum you need a factory style combo valve. It is a metering valve and safety valve to separate front and rear. It has two 3/16 outlets to the front and one 1/4 to the rear. The 1/4 goes to the "T" a splits to two 3/16 to the read brake cylinders. You will need a dual reservoir master cylinder also
