    Mine only looks vaguely like that, but then again, it isn't stock. It used to look very much like that.

    Guys on the 67-72 chevy trucks site are saying I might have the wrong M/C.They think it might be a drum/drum M/C.Does anyone here with a disc/drum M/C think it may be the wrong one.Is the front bowl on the disc/drum M/C bigger than the rear.Mine is the same size,both bowls.

    I double checked the part # with my NAPA dealer and he says that's the part # for a 71 Blazer with power assisted front disc,rear drum brakes.
    He's the owner and he's helped me out before cross referenceing other parts and hasn't steered me wrong yet so I trust him. What next?
