    Anyone ave a parts car? Station Wagon?

    Looking for the Brake Proportioning Valve. (Wagon Specific Part Here)

    This is a Cast Iron Valve (Not Brass)

    Power Brakes: Disk Front / 10" Drums on the back half.

    I would prefer a valve that where the car ran and drove and stopped.

    As mine was out of the car for almost 12 years and the brass valve has seized to the cast iron bore. As it did not have fluid in it while in storage. (My bad here)

    Let me know if you have one, as I would like to put the valve in before I put the engine in.



    Thanks

    Man, I wouldn't know one from another. Got half a dozen hanging on the face of a shelf. But I don't know that's there's any difference in them. Aside from the later 5thA ones being an aluminum block. I think somebody had found that you can order new ones again. Couldn't before, and I've sold enough of them that I never throw them out with the rest of the parts car detritus anymore.

    Wouldn't the four door one be the same as the long roof? Those brake specs match my four door.

    Parts catalog shows a different p/n for coupe, sedan and wagon (plus another for Police). I would imagine the difference is the rear brake bias, more rear brake on a wagon, less on a sedan and still less on a coupe.
