1968 disc brake distribution block

Location: Phoenix AZ

Does anyone have an original brake distribution block? The brass block where all the brake lines connect, circled in red in the attached image below.

I was taking the piston (shuttle?) out of mine and misunderstood how it came out. I used a punch too large and mushroomed out the flare fitting on the distribution block.

Marty, are you talking about this one that includes the proportioning valve? I didn't see just the distribution block listed by itself on their web site.

But maybe getting a complete repro is better in the long run. My original proportioning valve can be rebuilt, but by the time I buy that rebuild kit, the hard lines and the brake warning switch the price difference isn't that much.

I like the idea of keeping original parts on the car when ever I can, but I'm not going for a concours restoration.
