I am planning on doing a disc brake swap on my '66. I want to put in discs on all four corners and was wondering if there is a factory master cylinder that might work or do I have to pick up an aftermarket one. If anybody knows I would like to hear it. thanks!
I am not sure about this, but I think your best bet would be a 67/68 style dual master cylinder for a 4 way drum car will work. You want to upgrade to a dual resivour MC and the disk drum ones are bigger for one side. I don't think you need a proportioning valve cause all 4 should have equal pressure. Dont quote me on this until someone else rings in.:s6:
As far as reasons not to use stock disk/drum master for 4wheel disks take a look here: http://mpbrakes.com/mpfaqmasters.htm -gives lot of info on pressures/pedal ratios/bore sizes...
and heres one on discs: http://mpbrakes.com/mpfaqdiscs.htm
if you get time look thru the all MPBrakes FAQ links- tons of good info on just a few pages. I sure learned a lot in a few minutes...
