The one on the Left, is the Hill Holder's Check Valve that goes Under the Master Cylinder...

...While the one on the Right, is the Proportioning Valve, that goes Hiding under the Body.

it Lists all the Parts for the Main Markets where Subaru Sold Different Versions,

Despite that the Hill Holder and the Check Valve works on my Subie, I didn't purchased those, because the Proportioning valve is alright, and there's an ancient proverb that says: "Do Not Fix what is not Damaged"

 

Now I believe that I will Erase the Hill Holder, because the one on my "BumbleBeast" is leaky.

 

I disconnected the Cable coming from the Clutch fork to prevent it from leaking and my Lazy solution has worked pretty well, no more Leaks... and I really do Not need the Hill Holder to Drive.

 

Kind Regards.

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...

I'm really Glad that finally I got Rid from the worn out Front e-Brake system.

 

The Brakes feels very Good & Strong now, somehow way better than Before.

 

Now, the plan is to retrofit some Rear e-Brake system that I've been planning.

 

Kind Regards.
