Cool Master cylinder for 57 chevy

Anyone know if there is a dual master cylinder off a newer chevy that would bolt up to my 57 chevy? Maybe even power? It has the orig. one on it now and the cap is stuck on, I've tried evering I know but I can't get it off. besides I need more breaking power with the 350 thats in it. Thanks

If you want power brakes, which I do recommend) there are several suppliers which sell master cylinder, brake booster, proportioning valve etc. for 57 Chevys including MPB. If you just want a replacement with a dual reservoir check this out http://home.rochester.rr.com/flccc/mast_cyl.htm They use a remanufactured one for a 68 Chevelle.

I installed a brake booster/ master cylinder assembly from a '89 S-10 on my '56 Chevy Belair.
It works great. Be sure you get the proportioning valve and tubing with it also, if you do this.
Aftermarket items are good too, but are definitely more expensive. Also, the smaller size booster probably means not as much power assist, if that is important to you.

If by chance you are interested in "Not" using power assist ( booster) brakes a good choice is late 70's-early 80's Corvette(non-power assist) master cylinder. It will bolt directly to the firewall with no mods. but of you'll have to plumb your existing system for daul lines.It works well with drum brakes. There are two piston sizes(bores) available which will allow you to tailor the pedal effort.The one I frequently use is avaible from O'Rielly's under the part nos.A-1-10-1423(Cardone rebuilt)or Wagner F64980(new unit)

Right now it has the factory four drum brakes.
I plan on adding front disks in a year or so, but right now I just want to go to a dual master cylinder insted of the small orig. one. More interested in one off another type of car than one of those kits, they're too expensive for me.
