proportioning valve mounting?

I just purchased an adjustable proportioning valve. I'm thinking I should mount it along the top of the frame below and and to the front of the master cylinder. I want to keep it out of the way of the clutch linkage. Is the frame mounting the recommended way? Thanks in advance, Rod

Frame mount it or make up a bracket mounted to "something" that doesn't flex differently then the brake tubing. It goes in the rear brake line (usually)

Thanks to eloc431962 & Irelands child

Thanks for your response, guys. eloc, it's a '39 ford two door sedan on an S10 frame. I was concerned about keeping the lines and valve away from the clutch linkage. Irelands child, did I understand you to say the the valve should go in the lines going to the rear? I was going to mount it at the frame in front of the master cylinder. Does this make sense? Thanks again, Rod

Rod, this is a design from one of my least favorite vendors, but how these lines, along with the prop and residual valve: http://ecihotrodbrakes.com/images/pic02_brakefacts.gif

But yes, the prop does go in the rear lines.

Another proportioning valve question

Hi Irelands child & Deuce, thanks for the diagram, Irelands child, and for the picture, Deuce. I have a proportioning valve that has inlets and outlets for the front and rear, just like the stock brakes were set up. It has a front in and out and rear in and out. I even found a good place on the frame to mount it. I think I'm on my way. Thanks so much, Rod

That sounds like you have a stock Ford proportioning valve. Does it look like the one in the attached picture?

Thanks alittle1

Hi alittle1 and thanks for your suggestion. No, it's a Wildwood proportioning valve and, genius me finally decided to look at the stock S10 master cylinder that I had put up a long time ago. Lo and behold, a bracket for the proportioning valve that mounts on the same bolts as the master cylinder! Great! I had to modify it a touch, but it will work great. Thanks for your reply, Rod
