Go read his original post. The rubber lines and hose clamps are for the remote reservoir. Those lines only see atmospheric pressure, not hydraulic brake pressure.

The scary thing that you missed in those photos is that it appears that the brake hard lines are aluminum. I can't tell for sure in the photos, but the red and blue anodized tube nuts and sleeves are definitely aluminum. This is bad news.

As for the master cylinder, the S-10 M/C in this thread is aluminum. The one in the other thread is cast iron. Not even close.

yes i see it is a reservoir. but you think no air will get sucked back in the lines? sounds like those old lines will be used also. i play it safe!

This is how I got the coupe I didnt design this system...LOL

The car has a complete very nice pro interior with no trap door for MC access, thats why there is a remote under the package shelf accessed from the trunk.

And yea.. those rubber lines dont see pressure.. the brake fluid goes to the MC via gravity. Ive seen high dollar remote systems for sale that also use rubber hoses from the MC to the resevoir.

I certainly am in favor of safety.. thats why its not left the yard yet...
Brakes stop it from 5 mph in the yard.. but would take forever to stop at 50 MPH.

Somehow this coupe got 40,000 miles on it with this set up... so it must have worked???

I am retired and on a fixed income so I am certainly trying to find the most economical way to get this thing safe and road worthy.

If I can ID this MC and booster I can replace them and not have to redesign the mounts, lines etc...

I know Chassis Eng and many others have complete systems for this 37 Chevy Coupe....

But do I need 7" booster? I will have to check as I'm not sure a 8" would fit.

Should I get a single or dual booster?

This is under the floor boards on a low car so I dont care about chrome etc.......

Solid advice with part numbers, links to JPGS, etc would be a great help... I've already spent hours with GOOGLE, Summit Racing and EBAY...LOL
