Default 55 F100 Master Cylinder

So, my next project is brakes. Master cylinder is missing. Just stock brakes, and the master cylinder mounts on the frame. I know there should be a distribution block somewhere to direct the fluid to front and rear brakes. I don't see any on the frame. Would it be mounted on the master cylinder? Shop manual is unclear. Thanks

And that’s when the fight started ....

Thanks..Don't know how I missed that. It appears all the lines go into a fitting on the master cylinder itself.

The Ill is from a FORD PARTS BOOK.

That is the part I need. Distribution block that bolts to the master cylinder. Would anyone have one laying around? Maybe converted their brakes from the single master cylinder, and still has this part? I have one on order, but it is backordered, and it doesn't look promising at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry to get into this matter but I have a question for Kultulz. Do you by any chance have a parts breakdown and maybe part #'s of the emergency brake ? I am missing some parts so would like to identify them so i can order and install in my 55.
It is a 1955 ford Ranch Wagon. I saw the diagram above but my car has a different design that this one. Thank you kindly.

Here you go. The ILL is broken into two parts as my scanner is on the fritz.

Give me the PN's you need from the Ill and I will post the complete PN.
