I have a couple of sets. They look identical. I'll take a pic when I get home of side by side with original one. Let me know if you want the other set?

General Discussion / Anyone use reproduction quarter glass chrome?
« Last post by Mike S on January 20, 2017, 02:08:20 PM »
 Of all the pieces of chrome I remembered to send out for re-chroming, I forgot the quarter glass chrome. I knew I made a boo-boo when I went to reinstall the glass and took it from storage. In an effort to keep the reassembly on track and not wait another 7 weeks, I was thinking of using reproductions. Has anyone purchased reproductions and if so, what brand and do they have the slight indent on the inside-top that would fit into the roof/convertible seal?

Thank You,

 The position of the valve looks about right. I attached a pic of my setup using Inline pipes. I remember leaving the valve loose (no bolt)and attaching the pipes to the M/C only slightly finger snug, then using just a little effort, position the valve body to get the bolt screwed on. Then I installed the rear brake pipe last. I have another new set (never installed) in my hands at the moment and the shape looks exactly like yours.

Looks like they will go in with a little effort if you leave all the lines loose and components loose. It would not take much to burp lines if needed using your tubing bender or by hand. I'd try to install them before asking for replacement lines. If you want lines that will effortlessly fall into place you'll have to have them ship new ones that exactly fit the way you have the assembly bolted together.

That is hold-off/metering valve, not a proportioning valve.

Creating my Photobucket account now.
So the 6308's sound right and I will likely order them from Summit. I am a Licensed Drag Racer so i get a pretty good discount through them.
Will there be a paper tag or some markings so I know I get the right springs when I open the box?

The number will be stamped on the springs (sometime quite small) on the pigtails at one end.

Can your proportioning valve be moved? It looks cocked outward, it needs to be more in line with center line of MC.
