Below are two links to pictures of two different valves , the larger one doesn't fit the bracket right and the blind hole / threaded holes are reversed.

The new looking one is what I just received as being correct for a 69 Power Disc setup , I can't find a close up picture anywhere to tell if this smaller one is correct , I thought it was supposed to be exactly like the bigger one.

You can see that the body of the valve is bigger in relation to the nut , does anyone have this smaller one one their car (and sure that it's correct ?)

Is there a close-up picture ANYWHERE of a stock 69 master cyl./metering valve ?

I'm gettin' pretty sick of trying to find the correct one here...

Thanks,

Brian

The one that is larger is correct for a 69 power disc system. I just rebuilt my entire system complete, and thats the one I have, which I`m sure is original to the car,as I`ve owned the car for 25 years. I rebuilt my own, as there is really nothing in it but a seal, valve and spring. I`m sure you can do it too. The smaller one may be from power drum or manual disc. Good luck, Dave.

Here's a 69 booster and metering valve. http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...boost_side.jpg
The older valve in your photo looks like it.
Why not use the old one? They can also be rebuilt by Master Power.

Thanks ! , I knew the bigger one was it , I've seen it too many times , but Rick's sent this smaller one today and I knew it wasn't right when I seen it. I thought maybe there was a second version or something.

Can't use the "correct" looking one because the blind/threaded holes for the bracket are reversed and spaced wrong for the stock half-round bracket , but mainly because the side hole for the brake line / flare is wrong. It's the same size as the one in the big nut , and it's supposed to be the next bigger nut / thread size.

No problem rebuilding one if I could find it , there's nothing to them.

Thanks

Brian

Where do you get the new seals to rebuild these units?

Here's a photo of the seal inside. There is an O ring for the cap too.
Someone sent me this photo, I don't have a better one. I have not had one of these apart myself.
If this seal is just an O ring, you can probably get one easily. You can't quite see the whole seal in the photo.

If you have a four speed car or no choke. you might be able to leave this valve off completely.
My friend did and has no problems.
