Hi I'm Wayne,
I will help you with this,
you have the hard part done,
The Air lines are push fittings, drain air tanks, push in on plastic line, ,pull back on copper sleeve, and then pull air line out of fitting,

Yes you are correct, not a lot of room in there..........

I think I still have scars and cuts from when doing .......

There not push fittings I believe the dash may have to be pulled back?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
There is 5 threaded connections on the back of the new valve body, and looking with a mirror there are brass 45s and splitters with 3 switches?
Expert:  Wayne replied 6 years ago.

OK sorry, you have the old style fittings, your new valve is black Plastic,
you need to mark these lines and holes, reason being, take lines off 45's, and need to put them into new valve , then reconnect lines...........

once you get to the valve remove 3-4 screws, and it will allow enough room to wiggle the valve to get to lines

Thanks, Wayne
