Jack, they are identical. It bolted on the same, fittings in same spot, etc.
Thanks Scott,
I'm assuming it was from the earlier box style B-body....but I'll have to see for myself. I'm guessing the later B-body (whale style) has either 4-wheel discs or disc/drum combination.
The chances of finding later B-body cars is better than finding the old box body cars.

If I had to guess it was mid 80's. But that is going purely off memory, and well I destroyed a portion of that in my younger days lol!

You're probably right there, Scott. We don't have to go into any further detail regarding what era we left some of our brain cells behind. :LOL:

You guys realize the ONLY difference between the cast iron and brass proportioning valves is the metal they are made out of right? They will make NO difference in how your pedal feels at all.
Yes. I replaced mine because I believe it was contaminated and not working properly.

I bolted the rear Blazer disc brakes on when I did my conversion and am very pleased with the results. Stock 88 Monte master cylinder and proportioning valve and everything works as it should.
