67 brake lines??

What determined if a 67 camaro had 2 piece or 1 piece front to rear brake lines? Why are there 2 options in the parts catalog?

Look under the driver seat on the frame rail for a valve. No valve, one piece. Have a valve, two piece.

This is the valve you are looking for.

Thanks Guys! What determined if you had this or not??? I want to convert a drum brake 67 to disk and just wondered what this was for. Thanks!

Weight as I recall from David Pozzi's site. Air conditioned cars got it to help balance braking between front and rear. Assume big blocks got it too?

Been awhile since I did my brake research...

My Plain Jane '68 has it, manual drum brakes.

Confusing to me. I need to add disk brkes as cheaply as possible and don't know exactly what to do??

I did the same thing. Went from manual drums to power discs in the front, one piece- no valve.

I did same thing- one piece. Looks like Dave recommends the proportioning valve. I am running the metering valve under the booster. Appeared to be the most correct look for a resto. I'm not sure which wheels lock first- front or rear!

The "cheapest" disc conversion may be the single piston caliper (assuming you don't care about being correct) as opposed to the 4 piston 67-8 which would "require" resleeving the piston bores (assuming used parts). The rotors would likely be different as well. I think you were looking for 7/8 rotors in an earlier post? I have run both setups on my car fwiw.

And an added thought... if you don't care about originality use the combination (metering/prop/warning) valve that is described in the links above.

Then, do not bother replacing the hard lines unless they are damaged or missing.
Just replace the flex lines and install the disc brakes.
