chevelle brake lines??

Im working on my first chevelle and when I got it, there was no brake booster or lines and drum brakes, so I got a disk conversion and put it on. Then I got a 5 pc. set of front end lines from original parts group and I have no idea how they go in. Anyone have some good photos or a diagram? The disc kit was stock replacement, nothing costom from like ssbc or anything. Thanx.

I forgot to add its a 1970 malibu.

1970 still used 3 seperate brake control units for the disc/drum setup. A 5 port pipe distributor under master on frame, a 2 port front brake valve bolted near the master, and a 2 port rear brake valve bolted rearward on the frame.

The 5 piece front line set includes
1 line from rear of master to the brake pipe distributor
1 line from front of master to a bullet shaped valve bolted with the master
1 line from this valve to the pipe distributor
2 lines from the distributor to the front wheels
The lines reach from the master and front brake valve, behind the booster down to the pipe distributor.

You could get 1971 lines, and forgo the 3piece conglomeration, using just the 1971 Combination valve, and frame bracket for it.

I borrowed this pic off Chevelletech. I think it's for a 69, but the 69-70 line distribution was similar.
