I am putting disc brakes on the front end of a 48 Plymouth convertible. What should I use for a dual master cylinder that will fit under the floor as the original did? John

Hi . Mopar DUDE!! I would use the willwood mopar master cylinder .I noticed the Bigger bore DIA. the better on stopping.Or get one from the bone yard.. The chevy and ford guy's use them too .. HA,HA,HA,! And they say mopars are WHAT?!!! Any how I am using one in my 67 valiant and I really like it .. Try one out .. It's only a mopar product anyway... Take care ! If you like mopar ! Your O.K.
You might have to make a few brackets to mount it under the floor ,but that is really easy .. Think of it as a drag car set up...

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, we are flooded because of record rain fall and wicked storms. The Plymouth is o.k. The brakes are from Engineered Components. www.ecihotrodbrakes.com Thanks any help will be appreciated. John

The most common master cylinder used by street rodders is not a Mopar unit, it is a 67 to 72 Corvette 427cid 435hp manual 4 wheel disk brake master cylinder. They are cheap, either new or rebuilt and readily availiable. Stay away from the boneyards on this piece, it just isn't worth it. The Wilwood unit is a superb unit $$$$$$, but what are you going to do when it starts to leak on you in the middle of a rod run, or a cross country? And they will eventually leak in that mounting position under the floor near exhaust. The Vette master can be replaced at just about any auto parts store nation wide. I would however stay away from rebuilt units, go with new only. It will cost you about $60.
