I read and looked at the photos contained in the http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#Brakes as well as the booster, master cylinder and valve sections of the websitte.

What I'm looking for is the correct routing of the brake lines going from the MC to the distribution block on a 67 with power disc brakes and AC. I'm fairly confident that someone has monkeyed with mine by putting a very long line on one of the ports going from the MC to the block.

Does anyone have a photo of factory original lines? Seems the only photos I can find are with the prop valve up by the distro block while mine is down on the frame.

You are missing the metering valve.  I'd say the old one was leaking (assuming it originally came with disc brakes) and they removed it from the system.

Thanks for the photo.

So, then I'm wrong in assuming AC cars didn't have that valve by he distro block even when they have the prop valve down on the sub frame?

The car did come with the bracket that holds the valve and bolts to the booster like in your photo.

You are talking about 2 different things..  Proportioning valve is for the rear brakes (down on the subframe and yes was standard in 67 for AC cars).  Metering valve assists the front disc (rear drum) brakes and bolts under master to the booster...

Read here about Brake valves...
