Post rear wheeles lock before front

Finished tonight changing over to power disc and power steering on my 68 nova.I used the proportioning block off of the donor car which was a station wagon does anyone think that I should try a different proportioning block .could there be that much difference?The car stops really well but if you brake hard on a dry road ,you are sideways pretty quickly.

Just think what it will do on wet road! The proportioning valve you are using was designed for the weight bias of the donor car. Take Mirror Image's advice and plumb in an <a href="http://mpbrakes.com/VALVING.htm" target="_blank">-adjustible proportioning valve-</a> and adjust for the proper weight bias.
