need help finding dual master cylinder
thanks for reading this! I have tried all the catalogs I can find, done a google search, hunted through lots of unhelpful websites, no luck.

Does anyone know where I can buy a dual master cylinder brake set-up for my '65 Impala/Caprice? Thanks in advance for any leads!

hey wayoutcat i bought a newmaster cylinder and brake booster for my 66 impala i had a friend get it for me,i dont know who he got it from but i'll ask him and let you know. i'll post it here as soon as i find out.
i just checked my paddock catalog and there in there . is there somthing specifc your looking for? if you want to convert your stock single cylinder for a dual you might have to mix and match some parts. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> if you haven't looked there yet. let me know if you need anything else. :cool: 08-08-2002 06:46 AM

Classic Chevy International club should have everything you need. Why not go to Pick-A-Part and get a rebuildable core?

helrazr & willys, thanks!

what I want is to stick with my drum brakes, and unfortunately every dual master cylinder kit I've seen in magazines, catalogs, & websites comes with a disc conversion kit.

Also, I have to admit that I don't know what a rebuildable core is. I would personally never trust myself to do anything as important as a brake job without help.

As long as I'm coming clean about humbling truths about myself, I am one of those guys who basically only knows enough to change my own oil.

I replaced the head gaskets on my '79 buick in high school and that was about the most complicated project I ever tackled. I did some work on my exhaust with a hack saw. The less said about that the better. I helped my girlfriend's family with a bit of engine and transmission work, but I was just the dumb lackey who followed instructions.

I was slowly learning some heavy duty wrenching, from the girlfriend's dad, but then she left me, and my '70 stang got stolen, and I lost my interest in hot rodding for about fifteen years. Now I'm older, and i want to learn again, but now I spend too much time working!

Gosh I wish I had back all that free time from when I was 19...

He's right- give the folks at mpbrakes a call.
I know what you mean about feeling all thumbs. just think of it as very rusty!

i'm pretty sure in 68 gm went to dual master cylinders and anything from that year chevy should bolt right on. BUT... then you have to get a porportioning valve-(for same or similar car) and run some new brake lines seperating the fronts from the rears. shouldn't be any harder that that. i need to do the same to my 66 tempest, but why wouldn't you want to put discs on? get a rebuilt m.c. from a parts house and it will bolt right on. mp can definitely help but they are top notch=kinda spendy.
