Re: Brake parts



Well, after 5 or 6 trips to the parts store and 2 or 3 changes in plans, I have finally gotten everything in place to finish the MC swap.  Just waiting for the new brake hoses I ordered from Rockauto and a spring generously being donated from a fellow lister.  The challenges start at the new MC which has two different size ports, one 1/2"-20 and the other 9/16"-20.  The original distribution tee had a 1/4" flare inlet and 3 outlets that are 3/16" flare.  So that makes 4 different sizes that need to be accommodated.  The toughest one proved to be the fitting for larger outlet port on the MC.  It is made with both 18 and 20 threads per inch on the 9/16th side of the fitting and 3/16" and 1/4" flare on the other side  I came home with all 4 different versions at one time or another and then would try to get from here to there or go back to the store.  Very frustrating.
I finally ended up using the original distribution tee and putting a plug in the rear outlet and feeding it with the rear outlet of the MC and feeding the front brakes.  The front port was plumbed to the rear brakes.  The photos show "mock ups" of the original tee, the plumbing at the MC, and the final plumbing at the distribution tee. May need some minor tweaks on routing.  If I had to do it again knowing what I now know I could probably get it done in an afternoon.  Of course there was the one "hardest to get at" fitting that took about 3 or 4 attempts over three days to get loose which necessitated changing plans a couple times at least.

Wondering what those of you that have changed brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders have used lately ?  Going to a dual reservoir master.  Prefer new manufacture and made in the USA.  What brand and where did you get them ?
Thanks
