Well the ones on the front of my 72 do have two bleed valves but knowing that the incorrect ones have them also its hard to tell which they might be.

Knowing things are bad right now i need to drive it a bit long before i have another car to get to work.

On that i noticed that it only seems to drag in the after noon and with the stop and go traffic going home.

If I order a set Jim I will probably replace the hoses also.

I should mention that I have correct Type 3 rebuilt OE calipers on my shelf,
available as replacements for people who don't have correct cores for
rebuilding. They would be more expensive than rebuilding your own good
cores, but not as expensive as those incorrect replacements.

The down side is that they aren't shiny.
