Brake Fluid Types in Aluminum Bores

I have some buddies that have used the side mount system you are looking at with no issues as long as you can remove your dash to access the MC. one issue we did come across was corrosion and aluminum wear in the bore. He was using a DOT 3 standard brake fluid and we changed to a DOT 5 Synthetic fluid (silicon). This resolved the moisture issue (corrosion) and hopefully the aluminum wear issue to a degree. You will need to flush an existing system out to convert to the DOT 5 fluid.

staleg The Remote reservoirs must be above the MC, yes. But remember that the remote reservoirs can be real small, as they are actually not reservoirs, but just "indicators" that shows if you have a brake fluid leak. The fluid reservoir is still in the MC.

I made my own pedal set up:











2 small remote reservoirs on the fire wall:



It's standard rear brake reservoirs from a motor bike. Brushed aluminum caps are extra, but not expensive. Remember to use hoses that don't detoriate from brake fluid.

I admit that the assembly become a little bulky. If I had done it again, I would have used thinner materials in some places.
Another big advantage with this construction is that one can change the pedal ratio very simple, too.

jaw22w Not sure about this, but wouldn't a remote resevoir have to be mounted higher than the master cylinder to gravity the fluid in? Or not? If so, the mounting of the remote res would still be a problem.

dodge Van ?

I think some of the older dodge vans used that design of brake pedal. I don't know how bulky they were/ Time to go to the bone yard, camera and tape measure ?

evolvo Look closely at the cover on the CPP master and you'll see that it has two NPT ports located between the spring clips. These are there so you can mount a remote reservoir, filling is then no problem. As to cost, why not make your own mount? Just looking at the photo makes it pretty easy to figure out how it's done. Here's one I did in my car:

panhead1961 Good point guys.... I have the floor unit now and not much room under there and trying to get it to come through the floor to work with the column and stuff.

aosborn Ditto on the price and the filling comment...

jaw22w I have not used this setup on any of my cars, but I have 2 buddies that have them in their cars, a 31 coupe and a 30 coupe. They seem to work pretty good. Makes it easy to install under the dash without having the master cylinder on the firewall. Does make the cylinder a little hard to check and fill. They are a little pricey though.
