That lines up perfectly, I was confused when you said 'late 67 year build' above. My car is 04A and most panels are stamped '12', the original flat hood is '13'.

Is your mc correct for your car? Does it have the correct piston diameter? MC could be defective? Trash in mc or lines?

First off, I appreciate all of the replies and thoughts on this.

It is going to be a while before this car is actually running on the street so no matter which way I go, I wouldn't know the results for a while.

So now my question is......if rear wheel cylinders were redesigned with cup expanders starting in 1970 eliminating the need for the RPVs.......when you order new wheel cylinders for a 1968 car, what are you getting? The original 1968 design which would mean you still need an RPV......or an updated design meaning you would not?

And if all replacements wheel cylinders were updated, then what happens when you install the updated design (not requiring an RPV) on a car that still has it's original master cylinder that has an RPV. Could that push the brake shoes out too far? Those are just the thoughts running through my head.

This seems to be one of those many subjects where there are two distinct camps. I went through it with silicone vs regular brake fluid and stainless vs regular steel brake lines. In this case we have the folks who have no RPV and have great brakes......and we have the folks who had had poor braking, found out they didn't have an RPV and installed one, and had a great improvement in their braking......It makes it hard to make a good decision on which way to go.

I'm getting ready to purchase parts to repair the brakes on my '68. It has a '72 Ventura rear end. Checked on O'Reilly site. 68 & 72 show same part number. So if I get a mc without the rvp's it should be same '72 factory setup. IMO that last Chevelle post sure does make the most sense.

While driving, even at 1 mph if you brake more then just a light touch the right wheel will lock up. I have been down shifting for 3 years and then just use an extremely light touch to stop the car.  Anything more than that the right wheel locks up. This afternoon I just received my distribution block. I will try and install tomorrow. If that does not work I'm at a complete loss as its the only part I did not replace.  Jim

Guess - the phrase 'Hot Off The Press' may then apply here somewhat eh?
