Magical brake fluid gets squeezed into a block of metal, and then gets pushed out some metal lines. Is there a difference in function between a 1970 mustang with PDB, and a 68 cougar, with PDB? I can get one from the mustang for 35 dollars, VS 150+, plus shipping....

Re: seriously, proprtioing valves,

70 would have had a prop internal to the MC I think...? I'm pretty sure there are diffs, depending on front/rear disc configs....

Re: seriously, proprtioing valves,

I think Bob is agreeing with something he read to fast, 70 has the prop valve built into the dist block, and 68/69 has external prop valve separate from the dist block.

" 70 has the prop valve built into the dist block, and 68/69 has external prop valve separate from the dist block."
Exactly. And so, I can't see any reason to not use one from 70 or 71. Same function, different shape.
Right?

Re: seriously, proprtioing valves,

I thought the 70 proportioning valve was part of the distribution block, not master cylinder.... Are you sure about this?
Rob (and Carlton), right you are (of course!). Man! Not only do I have CRS (Can't Remember Sh!t), but I have CRS (Can't Read Sh!t) too! Yikes!

Thanks,

Bob

Right, you may have to do a little re-plumbing, but it will work.

Re: seriously, proprtioing valves,

Thanks all! Plus, I just noticed that I spelled "proportioning" wrong, and you can't edit that line. Grr!

Well I didn't think it was worth correcting all the Re: titles in the responses, but I did correct the thread title for you.

Regards,

Bob

Bob,
Thanks for the fix. My 72 mustang PDB distribution block was 37.10 from the local old yard, plus 58 dollars for a rebuild kit from WCCC.
Less than half of one with the cigar valve. A win-win..I get what I need for cheaper, and somebody that needs the "correct" part, still has one available.

DOH! Muscle Car Research's kit is way cheaper!

Which local old yard is that? The one off of Notus down the road from the fireworks stand?
