Default Disc brake identification

I have a set of disc brakes that I am installing on my wife's 66 Mustang. I was told they were Granada discs, but the distribution/proportioning valve that came with them is apparently off of a 68-69 Cougar. Can anyone look at these brakes and identify whether they are Granada or Cougar? Or is there some casting numbers I can look at to figure it out?

Thanks,

Are there any casting numbers?

They look like Granada discs.

I'll second that guess. I've gotten up close and personal with my braking system this weekend and they do look like my Granada discs.

OK, that's what I was told when I bought them. I was just curious because the proportioning valve I got with them is for a Cougar.

Thanks!

I posted this thread a week or two ago: http://www.google.com/search?q=ford+...h=626#imgdii=_

One of the replies had a link to a bunch of photos, and this one matched my setup exactly. At the bottom of the photo it says 68-69 disc brakes. That's what prompted my question. Maybe the Granada used the same brakes, I don't know....

Thanks,
