I decided to order a new set of stainless lines for the front of the car.  I'm planning on taking off the distribution block and cleaning it.  Any tips on this?  I'm nervous about what appears to be the brake light warning sensor.

OK, well I strongly recommend you rebuild the proportioning valve (brake distribution block).  There is a great rebuild kit and musclecarresearch.com with fantastic instructions.  Make sure you order the right rebuild kit for your distro block.  I learned some hard lessons doing one, you can read about it here:


Lot of stuff on 7173mustangs applies to our cars, and that thread is a recounting of some issues I had.  It should have some good tips on how to rebuild the block.

Got the Master Cylinder bled and mounted on the booster.  Started attaching the lines and man is space tight.  Got half on tonight and will do the rest tomorrow.
