Distribution Block, Disc or Drum
This block was used on all 1967 cars either disc or drum. This block is located down on the frame below the master cylinder. This is not a proportioning valve; it does not hold off pressure unless there is a loss of pressure in either the front or rear Brakes. It will then contact the brake warning light in the dash. In 1967, this block was used on all drum cars and also with the round hold-off valve at the master on disc brake cars. This block gives equal pressure to the front and rear Brakes and is also great for 4 wheel disc applications.
This item is an exact reproduction featuring a brass Body, the correct bracket, silver plating and working insides. You will also find with current manufacturing procedures, the reproduction has no tool stamping marks and the edges of the part are much cleaner than the original.
1967-70 cars all came standard with a dual master cylinder and drum Brakes. 1967 was also the first year for optional disc Brakes. If the car had either drum or disc Brakes, there was a distribution block with a built-in brake warning switch down on the frame below the master cylinder. From 1967-69, if the car had factory disc Brakes it used the drum distribution block in conjunction with a disc brake hold-off valve, which made the disc cars a 2 part valve system. In 1970, GM added a third valve in the rear line for brake correction, so the 1970 system had three valves. For cars converting to disc Brakes, after market replacement 1-piece valves are also available. Conversion valves will not plumb into existing factory lines.
Prop Valve Brackets are available for all cars with disc conversions.
