swapping Master Cylinders 55 Chevy

Been thinking of swapping out the single resevoir master brake cylinder for a dual for safety sake. Not ready to do the drum to disk conversion yet though. Any suggestions on type of master cylinder, mounting tips, rerouting of lines, proportioning valve to use? any help is very much appreciated. By the way this is going into a 55 Chevy w/ 350/350.

If I remember correctly, the dual cylinder you need is available at any auto parts store, or they can order it from their warehouse. It will be the last year of drum/drum for the Corvette, some where between 63 and 68?.

I've been there.

Save your cash and do the whole kit at 1 time. It is WAY easier than to do it in pieces. a kit will run about $700 complete with lines and all. The drums will suck just as bad with the dual setup as the way you have it now. You will gain some safety having 2 lines, but it will stop the same.

If all of your current lines and hoses are OK, than you are allright for a while.

check out Master Power brakes or Classic performance.

MPbrakes.com or classic performance.com

good luck!
