I am putting a disc/disc conversion on my 69 and have a prop valve, but am not sure I have the right one. How do I know if mine is disc/disc, or disc/drum?
This is what mine looks liks, but as far as I can tell, the disc/disc, and the disc/drum prop valves look identical. Any help would be great.
Thanx

I dont have anything under the door. My car was originally drum/drum, and I am reusing the original main line to the rear of the car, so does this mean I need one of these too if Im going to rum disc disc?

The valve you linked is a "combination" valve - it does distribution and proportioning. It was never OE on a 1st gen Camaro. No idea how to tell what it is for - there are lots of different ones that look essentially the same.

In my opinion your best bet when going to aftermarket disc/disc is to keep the factory distribution block and install an adjustable prop valve in the big line to the rear brakes. You can install it up by the MC or down on the frame rail where the factory put their prop valve, and adjust so that the rears won't lock up before the fronts lock up. In the links Brian posted, the only thing you could use with a disc/disc system is the first one (dist block). The other two are for disc/drum systems only.
