    Default Brake balance..?

    One for "Rambo, or anyone with knowledge of 504/604 brakes?
    Is the 604 brake equalizer valve the same as later 504 ['79] ?
    Thread compatibility ?

    Either no-one cares, or no-one knows.

    If it's any comfort, I don't know. And I don't care who knows it.

    Helpful?

    Started out with nothing, still got most of it left.

    Mike,
    It seems they are being shy or coy..
    Thanks for your interest.
    I was handed a 2012 Franzose Catalogue to peruse. Quite a few different valves listed.. I have a new balance valve that I need to compare, it has a pressed metal lever that is connected by a "bed" spring to the suspension.
    The part number on the box...4861 19. It has ATE with the number 21 cast into the body.

    this is a very very interesting conundrum.

    According to factory catalogues, the 604 and the US 505 sedans used brake pressure regulator part number 4861.19.
    Yet EAI listing for late 504 and 505 sedans has a part number 4861.19: For the 504/505 wagons it is 4861.20

    Thanks con. The numbers are looking good. The last number quoted for the wagons, because of their live axles?

    Presumably.

    Also, I misquoted the EAI number it should be 4861.18 - sorry: Shouldn't do these things at 1am in the morning.

    And did you know that you can get the internal rubbers to rebuild these limit valves from France -

    Re the rubbers from France, they are fine but they don't include an "O" ring that is needed, also Con, you mention Factory catelogues, any chance of a copy or pointing towards accessing one for 505's?
    Thanks
