I removed the distribution block when I installed the exact repo and blew it out and it seemed fine but I install the new one. I will know more once I bleed the system with the the new rebuilt metering valve.

Kelly in earlier posts I list that I changed everything and checked the rotors. The metering valve was missing and I install an old one. That's why I am installing a new one today.

Took her out today around the property and it seems the RF is locking up again except I need to brake harder to do that. I think it may be the old metering valve I installed. I did clean it up and blow it out and it seems to work with 35lbs of air pressure. Your thoughts?

Sauron327 Tkx the other cyl is new. Not much stock on this car in many years. That's why I bought and built it the way I wanted, though I did use all GM parts that were available in 69. I built one similar in 1970 with same side exhaust. If it was original id keep it that way. Tkx

Ok up date! Rear Right cyl. leaking. Replaced and cleaned. Brake shoes adjust internally there is NO seal, probably because its a 70 or 71 Nova rear! Who knew? I ran the serial number on the axel. Cleaned both sides. Adjusted by putting drum on and off using adjuster. Car stops perfectly now! YEA! Tkx for all your advice.

For the record here is my 400hp camaro

It appears they adjust with the drum off as there is no opening on the rear to adjust?

Yes I read Johns article and several more. Like I stated I inherited this problem and trying to make it right. The only item I can see that is not original type equipment is the metering valve. In all the photos, manuals and parts books I have read there are 3 choices, The 71-77 Pro valve the 69 pro valve and the 67-68 valve Some call them Pro. valves others metering. Most appear to use the 68 or 69 valve. I believe since my car was one of the first hundred made in CA. it had the 68 valve, then later was changed to the 69 valve. My car was someone's dragster for many years and thus many changes took place.  FYI Im 67 so I agree with you!
I blew up Johns pic and found the needed valve on line and ordered it complete with bracket and rubber boot. It will be here next week Ill replumb and report back. Tkx Jim

I have the factory distribution block and the new replacement is exactly the same. I have NO metering valve. There was one on the car originally and it was removed by someone who believed it improved that lock up problem as it was than worse then now. I now believe it was faulty and did not work correctly. I commented incorrectly when I called it the proportioning valve. I believe the metering valve is what I now need. If you agree what exactly can I order as all suppliers are calling that the proportioning valve?
