if you are talking about the flat rectangle valve all the lines under the master cylinder go into then out to the wheels they should be the same . if you mean the round valve drum doesn't use it . the brass valve on the side of the sub frame is front for disc

Thanks Mark, once again your advice is very appreciated.

Today i picked up the drum brake hubs, brake line brackets and housing ends.

tomorrow, i am meeting a local vette parts dealer, he is selling me a complete Corvette brake system ( great for mock-up and cores) for less then $150.00.

Although i will problably just use the Rh bracket

Yup -- stock setup had a distribution block under the master/cyl that was the same for all systems.

Stock disc/dum setups had a round hold-off valve that delays front brake operation until the rears grab a bit (apparently needed to make sure light brake application would stop the rear wheels from spinning when stopped at a snowy intersection).

Some stock applications also have a proportioning valve mounted on the driver's side of the subframe (under the driver's door area).
