Im using a manual master cylinder from a 84-86 mustang svo. I found a new bendix unit on ebay for $25. Aluminum with a 1.125" bore. Stiff pedal, but it works well for my taste.

Verify this before you try it by asking someone who knows mastercylinders. Some guys discourage this so they can sell you a new more expensive one.
I think you just answered yourself. most drum brake MC's have stepped pistons. Not enough fluid to the rear would be a problem in my book.On 2006-06-28 09:15, mikeandnatasha wrote:
I'm almost starting to feel inadequate using a stock 1 inch bore drum only master cylinder with my 4 wheel disk setup. I mean it only cost $24. I could have spent a lot more on an aftermarket 1 inch bore master cylinder and felt better about myself and the brake experts would have been satisfied with my intelligence. No adjustable proporting valve either although I had one and had to take it out to get enough fluid to the rear .
Hey, you can't argue with success. But I'm curious, why the check valves? Normally we use these when the MC is mounted lower than the wheel cylinders (like in a street rod) to maintain pressure in the line and to keep the fluid from coming back to the MC and overflowing it.On 2006-06-28 21:21, mikeandnatasha wrote:
I did use 2 lb wildwood check valves in line to the front and back with no combination valve.
