would like to put a duel master cylinder to replace the old single. I can't find anything to make it to easy,like it has drum brakes and i do like to keep them. I heard that Econoline Line Vans have the same breaking system ??

We need all pertinent information about the vehicle to answer your question.

Many of the Prior to 1965 full sized cars used a master cylinder with a one inch hole. I would first think about cylinder diameter before selecting a replacement, otherwise foot pedal travel gets excessive or you get brake lock-up.

68 Mustang. 1" bore, drum brakes, non power. Plumb the rear of the master cylinder to the front brakes and the front to the rear brakes.

If I remember right I used a 72 f250 master cylinder on my disk converson but the guy behind the counter asked me if the f250 had drum brakes on the front because there was two master cylinder's in the book one for disk and one for drum brakes on the front. if you have a good parts store with BOOKs instead of computers they should be able to help you find what you need. Good luck finding a good parts store!!!

I have the 77 tbird spindles and brakes to go on the front and I was wondering what brake pads to use that wont have problems with dust? Lord knows its enough to keep these wheels shining without disc
