Maintenance / Re: 68 Brake issue. Input needed.

Are you referring to picture #1 distribution block under master cylinder or #2 proportioning valve on the side of sub frame.

Do you have the proportioning valve on the drivers side of the sub frame. I had a issue with mine, could get a little fluid to the rear, but no full flow. If you have the valve(and you should)crack the line on the down stream side of the valve to check for fluid, if no fluid then crack the up stream side to check for fluid. I could remove the down stream line and only get drips on mine.

I wanted to give a update on the issue I was having with the headlight doors. I was using the engine for my vacuum supply(open headers). After plumbing a vacuum pump to the tank I could hear a leak at the T fitting on the green line going to the left door. Once I eliminated the leak both doors operate evenly. Hope this helps somebody.

I was there Friday, significantly more people this spring verses last spring. I had a vendor bring some moldings up otherwise probably wouldn't have attended. (last set shipped were bent at 45 degree angle)I looked for 2 15x8 Cragars found nothing. I would agree seems to be getting difficult to find Camaro parts at Carlisle. I was looking for 2 15x8 Cragars found nothing. Small block Chevy parts were there in abundance though.

Were you able to resolve the issues with the door panels? Did you buy repos? If so how did they fit? Thanks Paul

I received my 3rd relay on Saturday and finished the install today. BTW the 3rd relay was also Classic Headquarters although the vendor didn't disclose that info at time of purchase. I also changed the vacuum lines to reflect the 1969 illustration(68 Car), that Dave provided, verses the routing shown in the 1968 AIM I was using. The system is now performing as it should, although the left assembly closes slower than the right. Thanks for the help and the valuable information provided for me and other members going forward.

I'm now on my third relay, the first was OER brand, the second was CHQ, the third hasn't arrived. The  new relays looked identical, as you would except. The first was in a OER labeled plastic bag, the second was in generic plastic bag inside a classic headquarters box. I believe there is one manufacture and suppliers label and package them accordingly.

When I reinstall the original the system work as it should. Neither of the new units would hold a complete vacuum compared to the original.

The hoses then route between top of the frame extensions and bottom side of the inner fenders.

That's what I needed to know. I couldn't discern that from the assembly manual. I've been having a issue with the relays. I have a original vacuum relay that functions well, but really looks like HELL. I purchased a OER relay that doesn't work. I have another relay on the way, will see if that works. The relay ports are labeled R on the top port and G on the lower port which coincides with the assembly manual and information sheet included with the repo hoses.
Thanks for the reply. Paul

I have a follow up question. If you guys will indulge me. When the vacuum lines travel down the front of the core support to the canisters do they route down and around the frame horns or on top of the horns between the inner fenders? Thanks

James, The techniques and tools you come up with to recreate the factory markings are nothing short of amazing.

Iíve found the hose installation is straight pretty forward on a assembled car. Iím going to tackle the firewall grommet as soon as my son is available for the under the dash work. I think it will be easier with people and heís a hell of a lot more flexible.

I'm going to install the hoses this weekend, hide a little excess under the dash and at the actuators. Thanks for the input.

I purchased a repo vacuum line kit for 68 RS headlights.  Does anybody know if packaged hoses are precut to exact length or are they to be trimmed as necessary? I think I could tighten some of lengths up a little. I don't have any originals to reference for length. Thanks
