This is a nice competitively priced front disc brake kit. I did bend my front and rear brake lines to use the stock '66 distribution block and mount the proportioning valve body just below it. The supplied pre-bent 3/16 brake lines would fit. I did need a 3/16 plug for the original rear brake outlet of the distribution block and a 3/16 female to 1/4 male into the distribution block where the original single input from the master cylinder entered in the front of the distribution block.
The challange was getting the right torque to loosen the existing 51 year old brake fittings. Once the master cylinder was plumbed the hard work was essentially over.
The front drums can be removed without taking them apart by undoing the brake line in the wheel well and undoing the four bolts securing the drum to the front axle hub. Don't forget to remove the bearing race nut and cotter pin.
We did each step to both front hubs with the car on four jack stands. Each step was done twice and went quickly. After several trips to the local NAPA parts store we realized the supplied (attached to the flexible brake lines) unions could have been used on the 1/4 inch distribution block input to adapt the 3/16 inch line from the front output (rear port) of the master cylinder.
All told this is a good kit at an attractive price. The instructions are OK, but some adult supervision was appreciated.
