Default Brake Line Size

I am upgrading my brakes on my 66 1500 3/4 to front disc and stock rear drum brakes with a power booster & dual res m/c. My question is what size line should I use? 3/16" to the rear with 1/4" to the front or 1/4" all around or does it depend on the M/C? I will be replacing the rear wheel cylinders and all brake lines so as not to have any issues.

Thanks in advance.

Strud

3/16 all around is the usual for a replacement. That's what Id go with.

I converted my 60 to discs a few years ago. The lines coming off the MC are 1/4". From the front and rear tee fittings to the individual wheel cylinders or calipers they are 3/16".
