Best MC to use in Model A with Juice Brakes and original 4 cylinder

Hi Guy's,

I'm building a traditional Model A rod. I have 47 Ford juice brakes on the front and I'm using a 40 Ford Banjo rear. I'm also hopping up the original flat 4. Whats the best brake master cylinder to use and a way to mount it. Will be keeping the original trans for now as well. Eventually I'll install a flathead v8.

Thanks

Alex

Check out speedway motors. They have a floor mounted master that will work. You will need residual valves because the master is lower than the wheel cylinders. I have one installed in my 32 Plymouth and it works great. Hope this helps.

One of the best and most popular is the GM early Corvette MC. They can be had in all manual drum, drum/disc, or all disc. You can get them just about anywhere also which comes in very handy when your on the road. I would be very hesitant to put a specialty MC on a car that I was going to drive a lot.

302Z28 Is right you don't want something you can't get anywhere. The Speedway one is just an early 70's GM master but it comes with all the hardware to install it. Like the braket to frame and the pedal assembly.

I've seen the Speedway one. Will it clear the clutch pedal on the standard 3 speed?
