Chick,

  Were your hood springs still phosphate finished even though you removed them from the hinges?

Mike

Mike, no they were not! I took them off and used evaporust to lightly remove some surface rust, protected with rust preventative and placed back on the hinges. I think it also looks much better as they should have two different looking finishes instead of being both phosphate with the same stuff.

I microed the rotors and they are exactly the same. I now believe it needs the 1969 disc brake proportioning valve as there is none on this system. I bought this car like this and did not change the set up. So I now believe this set needs that valve, don't you?

I think the springs are 'painted', not phosphated...

Gary, the hood hinge springs should be manganese (dark) phosphated.
Agree somewhat Lloyd and you may be 100% correct but from my perspective they were not but service replacements were. Every service replacement reviewed including a set I had from 1979 was a dark manganese, almost a light black but survivors including our 69 Nova are just a dark gray phosphate. But again you many be correct friend. Great talking to you and reviewing items at MCACN Lloyd. :)
Opps, me bad as we are talking about springs. My original springs were not dark manganese.

*Something* is different for certain...

Have you actually replaced *everything* in the brake system..  Except for the rotors?  For completeness I'd measure the thickness of both rotors... and if they are the same thickness, then use some coarse sandpaper and *scuff/sand* both sides of each rotor.   

Do the rotor surfaces, OR the pads have *oil* on either of them??

Today I installed the Calipers and bleed the system right side still locks up with easy braking? That means I have replaced everything the master cyl, the distribution block, the hoses. Ran new temporary front brake lines and the Right side still locks up. $300+ new parts and nothing made any difference. I am at a total loss. Any ideas?  Tkx Jim F
