shouldn't just install and bleed all 4 corners

sorta what i was thinking, i might just put in a prop valve that i have just to adjust if needed

depends. what is this going into, what did it have before?

did you remove the residual pressure valve?

the only thing is maybe a larger master cylinder.. but i wouldn't worry until you try it.

BUT, make sure to remove the RPV.
or you'll burn up the rear brakes.

Believe with a full size truck its not a problem but if its a short wheel base vehicle its more likely to need a new one only way to find out is to try it

my edumacated guess is no you might find that your brakes will be biased to the rear but i found that it just set me up better for drifting corner's in my chev ... beside's new rear drum brakes + one trip to stave = no rear brakes ........ so haveing rear brakes will be a new thing ;)

prop valves are usually dead in those old fords anyway
chances are just bolting it in and running it will work fine
ford uses far better brakes on the front then anything you will find swapped onto a 14ff so the bias will be pretty close to perfect
if it acts goofy it is more likely the factory prop valve is dead
they were like $140 at broncograveyard when i did mine
