So I found where all the brake fluid is going in the gold car,
Right in the center of the frame the line is rusted through. So I'm gonna replace the whole thing.
My question is: is there a combination/ proportioning valve in these cars? I followed the lines from the master down to the abs unit and it looks like it goes down to the frame and then out to the rear. I know on the box Chevy's the valve is usually right on the frame. I also thought you HAVE to have a valve because it has disc in front and drum in the rear.

Is the proportioning done electronically in the abs unit? Or am I just missing something?
Lines all look like they need attention so I'm probably gonna replace ALL of them now and be done.

Typicality there is a proportioning valve just below the Master Cylinder reservoir. It is an aluminum block.

Exactly what I was looking for thanks Bill!
Is there anyway to delete the abs and just put in a brass Tee?
Abs doesn't work and I don't care to fix it. Can I just unplug the unit and bypass the lines?
Less crap under the hood the better!
