No issues on wheels clearance ! Its def close, but as many have said, including Joe P on this forum, 14 inch "steelies" will clear an OEM caliber and OEM disk brake setup, aftermarket it all goes out the window.
After my sons baseball game today I will try and get the old distribution block off and the new proportioning value on along with the lines.

I made some great progress yesterday, the new booster and MC is in. I also finished up the driver side disk conversion and I ran all of the new lines and the proportioning vale.

i need to get the proper bolts to mount the proportioning valve to the frame, can someone tell me the size ? What I took off from the previous drum distribution block will not work.

for today I want to bleed the MC and check for leaks. Hoping I can run to Homedepot or Lowe’s or Ace to source the 2 bolts I need for the proportioning valve.

Hey guys...so I'm all done with the disk conversion, bleed the system last night...went to drive and of course dead battery LOL I should get it out of the garage tonight for its first ride on the new setup

I have a question though, what have others done to secure the proportioning valve to the frame? Its considerably thicker than the distribution block/valve that came off from the original drum/drum setup.
As you can see here I don't want to leave it just freely hanging close to the exhaust header...also this is the exact part I am using, and its very close to original location of the previous valve.

There is a factory style frame bracket that inline & others sell for the '71 up style combo valve that you're using on your conversion. It's pt# BRK04 for $19. The flange head bolts are INL12048 for $4
