Re: Master cylinder



I just had my mechanic upgrade my 64 Barracuda and 64 Fury convertibles to dual master cylinders.  I, Like Akron Don, had a single brake system go out on a 62 Lancer (great car).  Luckily it was on an Akron street and I was able to coast to the side of the road.  Not so good on a highway.  Cost was less than $200 for all new lines, installed, with me providing the dual MC from eBay for around $50.
 
Well worth the peace of mind, and better than losing a newly-completed Mopar and possible life.

When I first got my '65 Belvedere, the emergency brake cable was not connected. No big deal, I thought. Then one of the brake lines blew. No brakes. That taught me not only the importance of the emergency brakes (not just for parking) but of a dual chamber master cylinder.


Unless you are absolutely going for a 100 point show car, convert to a dual master cylinder. If you do a nice job and tell the judges your life is not worth that point or two, maybe they'll agree and not hit you up for the safety upgrade.

Subject: Master cylinder

Hi,

I'm thinking about to get a "Scarebird" disc brake conversation kit for the '64 Polara 

Q: is it wise to use the single reservoir master cylinder?
     Or should I consider a dual reservoir 

ps, it's a manual brake system.

Thanks. Bert
