Default brake system - problem finding part

Hia

Im changing the brake pipe front to back and one part is lost.

the pipe from the front to the back is 6mm and then it go in to something that do it to 2x 4mm and then out to the left/right brake.

What is that, that makes it from 6mm pipe to 2x4mm pipe ??


have check some website and google but isnt easy to find something when you dont know the name of it.
No autoshop have no idea what im talking about so I hope you have.

Sounds like a brake proportioning valve.

Or a brake pressure metering valve.
