    Description

    This is a much needed part for your disc brake car. It is the correct Proportioning Valve Distribution Block for a 1970-71 Torino, Cyclone, Ranchero, 1970-73 Mustang and Cougar, but can be used on any year with minor brake line changes. Unlike the earlier units the proportioning valve is located internally. Keep in mind we do have a rebuild kit for your original unit so if you have an original FoMoCo block it is a better idea to rebuild it.

    NOTE! The feedback on this item is that one of the O rings inside is the wrong size and will leak. If you buy this item, we recommend that you purchase the rebuild kit and rebuild with the correct O rings.

    NOTE! The 1970-1973 Brake combination valve we sell will either come with the bracket attached or lightly attached. Depending on what mid sized Ford you are installing them on you will find the mounting bracket mounted one of two ways. In these pictures listed here we show how to gently remove the bracket, flip it around and install it correctly for use on a 1970-1973 Mercury Cougar or Mustang.

    If you purchase this part and have a serviceable used part you would like to send us for credit just mention it and we will give you up to $50 as an in store credit.

    Here’s a video to help you rebuild the distribution block so that you can corral your Cat or Pony without fearing for your life.

    The distribution block is the design used in 71-73 cars. I tried to overhaul the OEM one, but it failed. So I bought this one from WCCC. It looks and fits exactly like the original. Works without any problems.

    Short story long... I completely replaced all the brake lines and hoses in my '73 Cougar with stainless. I used a Muscle Car Research rebuild kit on my distribution block since the seals were pushing 40 years old (it was still leak-free though).

    After bleeding everything, I found a leak coming right out of the brake warning light switch on the distribution block that I just rebuilt. No fluid should even reach that switch. The new seals I installed were leaking. I am not blaming the kit. The instructions were straight forward and the bore in my block looked flawless. I must have screwed something up.

    Not wanting to mess with it further, I bought this block and a tool from Muscle Car Research to keep the brake light switch piston centered while bleeding the brakes. I installed the block and completely rebleed the system. No leaks and after the initial pedal travel slop, the brakes are rock hard. If things change down the road, I will update my review. So far so good.

    The lines threaded in easily and it appears to be very accurate in terms of dimensions and appearance to the original part. My only ding on craftsmanship comes from the small amount of brass shavings that were left in a couple of the tapered surfaces onto which the brake line flares seat. Some I could pick out but a couple were still attached to the block. My stainless lines sealed against them nonetheless without having to use excessive torque on the line nuts. Maybe I’m just picky.

    Good substitute for originals, but some QC issues

    I have converted my 1968 Cougar from manual drum brakes to power disc brakes, using all 1970 disc brake parts & components. When I got to the distribution block, I at first rebuilt the original core block from the parts car with WCCC's expensive "rebuild kit" with new o-rings. Very soon, the block started leaking from the brake switch, meaning that the brand new o-rings were not doing their job. Fail #1. That's when I decided to try one of these new repro blocks.
    First attempt with repro block: as soon as I started to install the new distribution block on the fender apron, one of the mounting studs broke clean off with very minimal tightening. Fail #2. Returned to manufacturer in exchange for another one.
    Second attempt with repro block: got the replacement and luckily the studs were sturdy this time and it mounted to the car without incident. Hooked up all the lines, bled the system, and did some braking trial runs in the driveway. Parked the car and... oh look, it's leaking. Fail #3. The problem ended up being simple, but should not happen... the copper washer under the brass nut / fitting on the top of the block had a manufacturing defect, giving it a slight crease in one spot, on both sides. Once I removed it and spent some time sanding down both sides of the washer to make it perfectly flat, and also sanding the slightly rough brass surface of the block where the washer goes (for good measure) and buttoning everything back up, the leak went away. Everything seems to be working properly now.
    So, despite the frustrations and multiple fails, I still think this is a decent quality product that just needs a little more attention to detail / quality control. It's made from the proper materials and fits the car / brake lines just as it should. Functionally it seems to do its job fine, but I need to do more trial runs on the road before I can really be sure. As an alternative to a tired original, this'll do... especially when the rebuild kits for the originals aren't made properly. When you're talking about brakes and safety, I didn't really want to rely on 45-year-old o-rings, so it's nice to have something that's all-new.

    Question
    Jon71stang Asked:
    I am swapping this block into a front disc conversion on my 71 Mustang. Should this block be mounted vertically or horizontally? The bolts on the mounting bracket line up for a vertical installation on my car.
    January 9, 2023 7:36 AM
    Answer
    After looking at the cars we have in the wrecking yard, all the 71-73 cars have it mounted vertically, so there won't be any problems.

    Answer
    Jon71stang Answered:
    Oh, I get that. Let me try to ask again in a different way. My original block (drum/drum) was oriented horizontal with the bolt holes in the inner fender being vertical. If install the new one (disc/drum), regardless of how I rotate the bracket, the block will be vertical. Is there an issue mounting the block in a vertical manner, just as the 10th photo above with all the labels on it.
    January 11, 2023 1:18 PM
    Answer
    As the photos show, the bracket was installed wrong from the manufacturer, you can remove it and adjust as needed.

    Answer
    WCCC Admin Answered:

    According to the information we have (we do not have an original 70 Torino to look at), the 70 Torino also used the same pressure warning switch as the Cougar/Mustang, Ford part # D0AZ-2B264-A (https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/d0az-2b264-a.html). According to the Ford Master Parts Catalog, there is only one switch listed for any Ford manufactured from 70 through some time in mid 72.

    Why am I being warned about potential exposure to chemicals in motor vehicle parts?


    • Some chemicals in motor vehicle parts are on the Proposition 65 list because they can cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
    • When purchasing USED or NOS items, we do not know if listed chemicals are present in these products.
    • This product is known to contain the following listed chemicals:
