Valves and there purpose have been discussed here ad nauseum. The hold-pff valve does what it's name impies: it stops flow to the calipers until the valve reaches 30-40 PSI. It does not make the front discs operate before the rear drum brakes. Do a search on this site about the valves and all the data can be found.

Hey real sorry to set you off..

Probably should start a different thread, but will theses different valves work together, and is there a correlation between nut size and sub frame valve? ( I should be mowing my yard)

I never had issues with the rears locking up ,of course I never drove it in the rain or snow ,so can't comment on performance in those conditions.

Chic, actually spoke with Steve about that nut  in October.

Thought I may have seen some gold on the clips, which were entombed in tar. Honestly ,just my preference.

Hold off/metering sometimes refereed to as proportional valve:

What's called out as the proportional valve on the Drivers' side sub frame is not on my car. Rear brakes fed off a single line which extends into the engine compartment. From what I've read about this part it appeared in 67 , D/c'd on Norwood Camaro's mid 68, then reappeared.

The hold off valve does control/regulate pressure between the two systems allowing fronts to grab before rears ,as it should ( 75% braking in the front I believe was the number) A sort of early attempt at anti lock brakes to paraphrase an article I read awhile back.

Here is probably the reason for the alias. And the system worked....stopping never was an issue with my car.

All that aside ,parts going out to Brakeboosters next week because they look sooo good restored!

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Should I paint over lightly stamped numbers on my original BU rear end on: April 07, 2015, 05:33:00 PM
As I'm going through mine, I'm documenting via digital photos ,creating files/photos on the computer(saving on an external) and posting on here when questions arise. I am not sure who now is keeping the data base on 68's since Ed B's departure from the site. Another reason being, if anything ever came  missing ending up on auction ,I have some sort of proof the parts are mine. Angry Distributor for example.) Just do a before/after pic.

 As far as your question: I'm in favor of painting. Like has been suggested, maybe just feather over the area you want to display as not to fill the text.


My car was covered with goop out of the dealer, so none of those numbers have seen the light of day since 68.

To me it has been sort of fun gathering and filing the data...bit of an OCD thing Smiley

I strongly recommend picking up a copy of Jerry M's book. Has been a real time saver and a wonderful reference. Well worth the money.

maybe 1 9 left to right honestly can not make it out for sure.

I still haven't got the body shop pics when it was stripped ,anything he found he recorded. I did not want under the deck lid touched so it may forever be a mystery. Of course could probably make a pretty educated guess.

I'm assuming hole above date code was for Ziebart?? Looks punched, not drilled.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: April 05, 2015, 04:29:24 PM
can't find the date code, un-touched underneath so I'm not sanding.(you understand) Latches/bolts shot. Car's 68. 04D Norwood ,non-spoiler. See anything that helps your quest?
