While I probably don't have any good pics showing what you want, they routed no differently than any of the other '65-'69 Mustangs. The only difference from the previous years, was the integral proportioning valve. The only difference this makes is around the distribution block/proportioning valve (makes it just like the '65-'69 drum brake cars).
I have them roughly installed but I wanted to double check my connections. The dist block is vertical with the 70 setup (two mounting studs). My 67 dist block was horizontal (one mounting stud). I am also curious how it was originally routed and secured to the firewall etc. Not that this setup is correct but I think the engineers did it right back then and why change it now. I have all the 67 assembly manuals and I try to stick as close to them as possible. Just don't want to invest in a 70 manual for one item...
I also noticed that the 67/70 mounting points at the flex line differ. The 67 chassis has a bracket with a clip at the flex line-to-hard line (w/180deg hard line turn) where as the 70 has a bracket that is part of the flex line itself (no 180 turn, straight hard line).
You are correct about it mounting vertically. If I remember the master will go to the top of the tee with the right part of the tee feeding the left front brake. The left of the tee will feed the right front brake. On the bottom half, the master to the right side of the proportioning valve and the left bottom corner feeds the rear brakes. This is looking at it mounted in the car and looking at it from the passenger side. I will try to check my shop manuals tomorrow evening. Is this the information you are looking for?
I have '70 brakes in both my '66 and my '69. In the '69, however, I'm using the '69 distribution block and "torpedo" proportioning valve (with all it's billions of lines).
On the '66, I used the '70 combo valve. I drilled an extra hole and have it mounted upside down, but horizontal. This way, all the existing '66 hard lines hooked right up to it, with the help of one adapter.
On the flex lines, I used the Russell steel braided lines. They'll last longer than the stock rubber lines, and they cost less (for some bizzare reason). I used the brackets that came with the Rusell lines on the '69, because the drum brake brackets wouldn't work with the disk brakes. The drum brake brackets on the '66, however, worked fine with the '70 disk brakes. The '69 manual brake lines needed a fitting to attach to the '70 flex lines, but the '66 manual brake lines didn't.
It was odd to me that the '70 disk brake hardware is more compatible with the '66 manual brakes than it is the '69 manual brakes.
Doubt any of that helps you, but figured I'd throw it out there.
Sure it does John. More trivia to quiz others with. :-)
Yeah, I decided to go all 70 with the exception of my original power booster which I had rebuilt. 70 brakes with spindles, outer tie rods, master cylinder, dist block, hard lines, and braided flex lines.
By the way; Speaking of trivia. The 70 setup has a two prong warning light sender. My 67 has a single wire. The single wire sensor threads right into the 70 fitting. What are the odds of this working?
I would love a diagram if possible for my records. Might be nice to have it posted as a reference for others as well. I often take digital photos of diagrams with good results if a scanner is not available. If it's to much trouble don't worry about it.
