Question: you are sure the rear drum brakes are actually working with the RPV out?  If they are then there must be some residual pressure there somewhere if you don't notice any nose dive or have a longer pedal travel than normal.  How far does the pedal travel before you get rear brakes to engage?  Have the lines to the rear been replaced to your knowledge?  How about the switch assembly (right under the master cylinder).....has it been replaced or is it the original?  Any possibility either may have some buildup in them?  You bled something, was it the master or at the rear wheel cylinders?  I suppose if there is some restriction and since the master is higher than the rear cylinders there might be enough head pressure to keep the cylinders out but I sure wouldn't want to rely on that.

You mean the RPV.  Sure, you would just pull the brass seat and put it in.  You would need to install a spring as well under the RPV and a new seat.

I was really responding to Kurt's comment. 

I believe any master cylinder port would need a RPV if that particular line was feeding a drum brake cylinder.  Necessary to keep some back pressure for it to work properly.

Yea, that's what I said up front.  From the "Chassis/Brake System" report:

See if any of that info helps.

Still have mine from my 68.  I have them in the original paper pouch provided by the dealership.  Also,  one of my sons has a 67 that still has the plugs in the keys.

Would it be possible to add 3784845 to the end of the Subject box so others might find this thread easier?

Done.

As Wayne said, see if you have voltage to the solenoid.  If you do have power and not hearing a clicking sound from the starter solenoid then it is bad.  If you hear a clicking (solenoid kicking in) then the starter is likely bad.

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Need pics of 68 RS hidden headlight system on: May 16, 2014, 09:26:14 AM
My car is a RS/SS,but when I purchased car back in 77 the hidden light system was removed.I have purchased new repro headlight door assemblys,vac tank etc. but I have no idea where they locate.
If someone here could post a few pics of the mounting locations for the actuators,tank and valve,door stops etc it would be much appreciated.No rush as it will be awhile before I get to the front end.

Do you have the factory assembly manual?  If so see page 427 through 437 or UPC Z22 pages.  Everything you would need to know to install is there.

I would have been surprised if the rivets were still black on your car.  They were manufactured with a black coating which wore off pretty quick from the elements.  If you look down the tube you will sometimes see a little black still there.

Nope, we have not started to take orders yet for the next round.  Getting things lined up.
