    the left end, closest to frame rail end of the valve assy.. as viewed in this pic.
    and this is the ruber cap end of the valve piston.. and this is the opposite end of the valve from the rear brake line end of the valve assy.

    and that white or light colored thin cardboard or plastic rectangular thingy laying on the crossmember. this is what the rubber "button" end cap is attached to and blew off the end of the valve assy and this is where it landed, all on it own...

    maybe tmorrow i will finally get to swapping replacing the valve assy finally hmm..... or unless its too cold, or it snows or something.. then i dunno,,,
    today was just too darned busy.. again hmm...

    I hope the swapping the prop valve works. There are prop valve rebuild kits, I know ford has them as I did the prop valve of my wifes 69 mustang. Not sure if they are available for chevy.
