The round valve under the MC is a metering/hold off valve, the proportioning valve is located on the subframe. There is then the distribution block. The hold-off valve can be rebuilt by a car owner and it is an easy job. Not sure if a rebuild kit is offered for the proportioning valve yet. This has been on this site before:

Hard to find, but it is there.

I believe the 12" one is for Chevelle.

I have been to the show every year since it started, not always with a car. For the most part the weather has been cold but dry. Last year sucked, steady rain all evening.
 I would strongly recommend not driving in and out that time of year. Do what charley suggested, Reliable picks up alot of cars from CA and AZ.
Money aside you'll love the show, best in the world.

HBC's mount are good.

 I just got a set for my SB 69 Malibu from Summit, they are made by Anchor industries in Solon Ohio and look really nice.
Check them out.

It was green 3M tape, only did it in one small spot, just pulled the outside layer off.  Another good alternative is to wrap it with wire harness black wrap.

Some of this may be helpfull, be careful using tape, I pulled some rubber loose with tape, and be careful tugging to hard on the edges.

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gas cap for '69 Camaro GM part number #3931449 on: February 08, 2015, 10:04:34 PM
I suspect this cap is no longer correct for a '69.  A '69 gas cap should be "vented".   The caps I've been getting are in AC Delco boxes and use GM#3931449.  The last 3 caps I have gotten are not actually vented causing the needle and seat to seep. This causes a gas smell to build up the my garage after driving my car.  I have to remove the gas cap to relieve the back pressure.

These caps are marked "Vented" but are in fact "Non Vented caps"   The non-vented caps appear to be of the same construction.

Where can I get a correct gas cap?  My local dealerships don't stock the caps any longer but can order them, but they are not correct.

Ideas please.  I have been able to find good caps in the past but not lately.  Dave

Read this thread, your cap should not be vented directly to atmosphere

FYI
Another good substitute for the black rub material for the front window guides that I have used often is black velcro ( the loop side that is thicker) 2 " works good.

I have restored at least 100 or more 69 Camaro parking lights, allot of the cores I have purchaced had OEM amber painted lamps still in place, with a blue glass insulator for the two contacts.

re; 69 Camaro A.I.M, upc Z21. item# 4, 3853846, added by revision 4 in late 1968 ( hard to read the full date in my crappy copy)
 I believe some cars did get the bright zinc bolts. Some of what I understand is based on talking to other Camaro restorers who have seen these on original cars.
Never say never  :>)
