I have a 1966 Ranchero, 289 V8 with 4 wheel manual drum breaks. The current single bowl master cyl has 2 line, one front and one rear. They actually work really good but I'm concerned about there only being 1 bowl. If I spring a leak its all over... Does anyone know what dual bowl manual master cylinder would be a direct bolt on? I've had lots of problems matching parts for this car since it seems to be different in many ways than a 65 and a 67.

Thanks!

I'm thinking a 66 Mustang non disc will work . Nice ride ! Welcome to FM !
Ah, but the 66' Mustang also uses a Jelly Jar MC. Dual bowls started in 67'. ;)

A 67' non disk Mustang MC should work just fine and will bolt right up. You may need to use the Ranchero's pedal to MC rod as the length might be a little different. Additionally you will need to move the brake lines a little or more than likely need to make new ones. You might find that the screw in fittings are different compared to the ones on the MC. Adapter fittings can be found in "good" autoparts stores.

Another Welcome to FM.

Any of the Ford masters will work, I say any, meaning Mavericks, Comets, Mustangs that have the brakes you have.
