do you have any clue if a manual brake 1969 Camaro would have had a vale on it for brakes or not? I got this car in pieces and do not know if they sold this part too.lol I have a drum brake car and just need to know if it would have had a proportioning valve or not?

A 69 should have a distrubution block. The drum brake and disc brake cars used the same block. There is a seperate hold off valve for the rear brakes on the brake line coming off the master cylinder. You can add a prop valve or use one of those adjustable valves for the rear brakes.

FWIW if you salvage parts from a donor car get the distribution block as well as the power booster. If they are bad be sure to get replacements per the donor car.

I have been doing some reading and the dist,blocks are pretty much worthless after 40 psi. Can I just run a line from front port on mcyl and split to each of the front wheels? Then from rear port to rear wheels? Is this something that will work? :confused:

disc brakes conversion
Just get a proportioning valve off a later model Camaro as long it is a disc/drum setup. You have to have the proportioning valve or else all the pressure would go to the front brakes.
