Putting my 65 Chevelle back together, and the proportioning valve seems to want to go here... but it looks like a) the line to the rear will go out of the top and then to the back, and b) all the lines may interfere with the clutch linkage, so I'm thinking this ain't right.

It lined up with a screw-hole there so I bolted it on, but if it's supposed to be elsewhere better to know now before I start making the lines for the brakes.

So - is this the right place? If not, where should it be mounted and in what orientation?

quite awhile ago, a friend of mine had a 65 chevelle. If memory serves me correctly, its the correct place, but not the right orientation. Meaning the body of the valve actually goes over the clutch linkage, I think the valve is supose to be going horizontal, not vertical like in the pic.

Again, this is only memory from awhile ago, so I'm not completely sure.
