    Your Not a Marble Head!

    It is a mechanical valve it does not care how it goes.

    You will need adapters from the valve to the Toyota Flare fitting size.

    It might be easier just to make adapter lines.

    Install it at the Master cylinder and Run new brake line to the tee at the rear axle

    Plug the lines at The front where the LSPV goes to.

    I've done a mod or two
    That valve is like mine (and probably like all of them since metric has no support) It's a 3/8-24 inverted and our brake lines are M10x1.0 inverted. I just used a short conversion line and a long conversion line to fit mine where I wanted it. My local hydraulic shop made the soft line for me.

    I have helped someone before, however this is my first time working hands on "alone" (with TW guidance) with fittings/lines, etc.

    Since the provided fittings with the one I ordered are for a 3/16 line ("Valve also includes two fittings to adapt to 3/16 inch brake line"), I can just use those, correct? Or is this a no because it's a 10mm?

    So I finally went & actually looked at the MC. I mean I've seen it before, just really looking this time.
    *disregard - Mine states 13/16th on it. Is that of any significance? (Just adding that because you put 10mm line).

    I think I am complicating this.
    Basically it's plug & play (adapters, etc.) except removing the return line & plugging it. Then connecting the rear line, correct?

    But what did you mean by this?

    OMG! Never mind. Totally brain messing up. It's from complicating it.... I was thinking you meant plug the lines where the new valve was. Made no sense of course..... Sorry....

    It's not plug and play, I pulled an entire return line and modified the existing rear lines

    I did add those two things in. & I didn't mean to simplify in the sense that it was easy. Just that I am complicating it.
