moving brake proportioning valve

I need to move my proportioning valve from the side of the frame to the top for header clearance. (V-8 into '81 CJ-7). I'm hoping to unbolt alot of the brake line holding clamps and carefully "massage" all the lines to the top. Any thoughts?

If you end up needing to cut and double flare lines, it is pretty easy. You might want to make a bracket that moves the proportioning vavle to the top of the frame and a little to the outside.

Re: moving brake proportioning valve

i would suggest getting two new shorter lines.. from the master cylinder down to there.. move the valve to inside the engine bay.. and then get two other short lines with a double male fitting and mate them together... those lines are only 3-6 bucks a pop.. and would be easier...
but it depends on how far you want to move it..
