About the Hill-Holder Check Valve, they only have Two Models:

The Left one Belongs to a Legacy, it only have Two Openings (in & Out) Not Three, the Right one is Not a Check Valve but a Pressure Regulator / Distribuitor, but Somehow the Dealer got it Listed as the Check Valve...

I Don't know Why the Salesman show me That Parts for my EA82, but I Took a Look to his Parts Catalog and is very Very Beefy, it Lists all the Parts for the Main Markets where Subaru Sold Different Versions, in Example this Brakes' Page:

Since I Didn't obtained a Legacy Calipers onto the EA82 Clamps, I Decided to Stay with the EA Calipers, so I First Tried to Renew them to the Almost Brand New Condition, and I Obtained This:

However, The Word: "Cariper" Sounds more Japanese after all ... :) ...

Finally, After Many Many Tries to make that Horrid e-Brake System to Properly Work once again, including almost all New Parts; the Sticky e-Brake Pistons Problem persisted... :horse:

So, I was Really Tired to Deal with That, Also the Worn e-Brake System leads to twist the mini O-Rings on the Back of the Caliper, making Brake Fluid Leaks... :banghead:

So I Decided to Totally get Rid of that Faulty e-Brake System and Make my Wagon Safer. :)

So, This is How the Caliper Looks after the "Close the e-Brake Passages" Job was Done and was Freshly Painted.

I Closed them Using a Round, almost Flat Bolt from the inside to the Outside, then Cutted it and Safely Welded the Entire Outside Area.

This is How All the Calipers Looked Like when they where "Just Painted" Under the Sun. Not Only the Front ones but the Rear ones got Brand New Seals, etc...

Yes, I Know that my Wagon doesn't have e-Brake Anymore, but I Got Rid from the Leaking & Sticking e-Brake.

The Original EA82 e-Brake isn't very good after all...

Also those Rear Disc Brakes could be Modified to Use Calipers from the Rear Disc Brakes of a Nissan Sylvia (a.k.a: Skyline, 240 SX) and those have Rear e-Brake, which is Doable: it has already been Done by another USMB Member, just look earlier in this Thread for the Link.

Kind Regards.

As I Said about the Old Rear Drum Brakes:

...(The Rear Ones I Hope to Swap there Discs and Throw the Drums soon...)


I Did it! ... as you can see here:

Also, here is the Thread about doing the Rear e-Brake Swap, using the Rear disc Calipers (That already have the e-Brake Mechanism) from a Nissan:
