Hill holder clutch lockup

The brake can be dangerous off road;
If your climbing a hill and push in your clutch to roll back a bit, you will find your brakes locked up and you may be in an uncontrolable slide backwards with your brakes locked!!!!!!!! You won't be able to control the vehicle until you put the vehicle in neutral and release the clutch!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you really find necessary to have it working try making your spring that retracts the H/H clutch tighter.

So the hill holder is under the hood?? I thought it was in the rear with that mess of brake lines. What is that funny looking thing with 4 lines going to it in the rear then? Just a porportioning valve for the rear? Is it REALLY needed?

I think the "mess of brake lines" in the rear is really fuel lines leading to the evaporator box from the charcoal filter. These lines zig zag endlessly back and forth under the car for some reason.
The brake lines are fairly straight forward.
The hill holder will just get in your way!!!!!!!!!! off-road.
For what its worth,

So I dig out this funny vavle I've removed from my '88 GL wagon. When I talked to mudrat79 about it on the phone I described it as a cylinder housing with 3 lines hooked upto it. I was wrong; it has FOUR, 2 on each side, of a 4" aluminum cylinder. Funny little cap at the end of the cylinder too.
Suposidly the porportioning valve is in the front; under the bonnet. I looked and It's not there unless they hid it behind the brake booster assembly. Lines to go from the master cylinder to the hill holder and direcly to the front calipers from what I can tell so far. Two more go up on both sides of the fire wall and dip into the car. Coming along the floor and to the rear bench seat. They descend into the rear subframe assembly (BETWEEN THE BODY AND MAIN X-MEMBER WHERE MINE BROKE! ) go to thi crazy cylinder and 2 more lines come out to corresponding drums.
It's got to be the main porportioning valve The whole assembly (cylinder, lines, fittings) are shot. I could maybe reuse the cylinder but why reuse all the lines and fittings that's just going to break again on both sides. I hope the dealership has perfect replacment lines?? That would be too easy. Those 2 custom lines I was going to have made are out the window; this assembly is critical to the brakeing, correct?

Definaly a good thing. This must be why I find it nearly impossible, unless I really try, to send my wagon into a tail spin. Need to do up some brake lines I guess and bolt it back on...
That object in the rear is just a
