Help with a Hydraulic Clutch

Has anyone out there got a few links to good articles on hydraulic clutch set ups? What master cylinder to use, what slave to use, if any of the hydraulic throw out bearing out there can be made to work. Right now I am dealing with a deuce coupe running a Tremec five speed, using an antique Chevy truck double master and a mid 60’s Chevy truck slave cylinder. I am in bad need of an upgrade. It seems like there was just an article in a mag dealing with this where they used a master and slave from a corvette of some year, but I cant find it now that I need it. Anyone got any links, or can you point me to the right mag?
I might post this in transmissions, and in general knowledge. Mr. Moderator, if I shouldn’t do this in the future, just let me know. Thanks for your help!

I got the cylinders from a Jeep fine..if you have a chev pattern tranny then one of the hyd throw out bearings can work..get those at the usual suppliers..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

What you have right now sounds like a 60-62 chev pickup set up. I redid a 60 and the guy wanted a PB booster, so I had to do away with that dual master. I think it was a carquest catalog at a parts store that gave specs for all single clutch masters, and I ordered one that had the same bore as the 60 had, and kept the 60 slave as it was a new one. The replacement master had a large screw on plastic fluid reservoir cover in case you look at some in a book.
