Here's a picture of my beater if I can get it to work.



Only thing "beater" about that car might be the rear tires! :D Great color combo!

Love the Bronze Z too!

The new distribution block is exactly the same as the cast one I took out the other day. Interestingly I searched 69 Camaro engine compartment images and in over the 100 I looked at none of them had the metering valve! Yes I know its supposed to be there originally but it made no difference when I had the valve! In fact the front locked up even more! Once I replace the 2 front calipers I will report back.
Yes I did trace all the lines. Jim

Crazy idea....right front caliper is hooked up to one of the rear brake cylinder lines and the residual pressure valve is keeping pressure applied.  Trace the lines?  Test - Opening then closing the right front caliper bleeder screw would relieve the pressure in the caliper and the wheel would spin freely again. 
Photo is unclear but looks like a combination valve like JK says, which is not original on first gens. Original 67-69 system is here: http://www.camaros.org/brakevalve.shtml The combination valve shown in that link is a later version, original combo valves were cast and more rounded. You said you replaced the distribution block which would indicate it is not a combo valve. Distribution blocks have no valving function per se. Read the link. If it is not a bad or stuck caliper, something is exerting excessive pressure on the system.

Originality / Re: 67 11B parchment seat covers

Thanks Pete,
   Yes, those are the seats that came with the car, used and worn. The P.O. states that those came with the car when he got the unrestored car in the 90's, he was not the O.O., Anything could have happen.
     Funny thing, my wife now wants the all white interior. " the white is classy and the lines (black inserts) look out of place"

Restoration / 67 Bumblee Stripe From the Factory
« Last post by DC7432 on December 05, 2016, 09:32:40 PM »
Was the Bumblee stripe painted when the car was fully assembled or where the fenders and front valance painted individually?

Thanks in advance
