all good questions Steve. Can't give you a answer to most other than good pedal and no nose dive. Have a gravel drive and they seem to work together. This car had the duel piston calipers and I'm wondering if this is helping to even things out. The thing that still bothers me is the PRV not allowing a release of rears.

Well this might be hard to believe but, they operate fine with it out. Really don't know why,  but does.
And the one I pulled was a new one. ??
I would think it would have to do with the spring. Rubber ok and opens in the application of brake and that worked. Has anyone had kits that the valve spring was maybe to strong it allow release?

I just installed a new master with a rear check and after bleed down good the rear brakes would drag bad and hardly release. Thought it to do with RPV so pulled it and they now release fine. The aftermarket I removed didn't have one either.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks  John that  is the answer  I'm looking for . So there was one cap used on power disc cars in 67. And this is it.
A reproduction of original anyway. Agreed?
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 5460346 Master Cylinder on: February 26, 2015, 08:20:04 AM
Agree with you on that Mike. But top is in question. This had turned up a couple times and also seems to be a 67. Anybody agree or see the top one on 67?
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 5460346 Master Cylinder on: February 25, 2015, 09:52:39 PM
Two different caps that are possible 67.
Opinions please.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 5460346 Master Cylinder on: February 25, 2015, 11:25:46 AM
Yeas thanks. I had seen that post. But most referring to 69.
And answer to my question not definite on 67.
Did they just use one cap on most all masters in each run or year?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Master cylinder cover on: February 25, 2015, 11:05:45 AM
So with 3 or more shown and spoke of here.....
Which cap is the one used on the 5460346 WT in 67?
Did they have more than one cap at a time or all masters as time went by change what was used?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 5460346 Master Cylinder on: February 25, 2015, 08:09:14 AM
What is the correct cap for the 67 WT?

Will address paint  first and then look into rust remover. Might have to try brushing on and keeping wet that way instead of dipping.
Then after cleanup question is how to get cad look back?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restore cruise servo finish on: February 24, 2015, 11:29:41 AM
Most of what you see here is silver paint. Will it also take off paint at about same rate as the rust? This looks good James!
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restore cruise servo finish on: February 24, 2015, 10:20:11 AM
James there is also a series of vent holes around servo along with the center hole
Where chain is attached to diaphragm. And to make matters worse or more difficult if you will, is the presence of a ink date stamp on the bottom that I would like to preserve.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restore cruise servo finish on: February 23, 2015, 11:30:22 PM
Just servo would have to be done. Bracket left as is. Donor??? Maybe later model but fought you'll find another one of these.  Maybe a later model to exp with?.
