Had plans to go with an tandem master in my 57 300c. Was confident an skinny tandem will fit... reality bite me after setting up engine with new mount/insulators. So now started setting up an offset bracket for my wilwood cyl,, total offset now is 1.062inch but this will not clear the valve cover! pluss balance valve do not clear inner fender...
Am sure i will get it working with more work into it!
Paste some pics so you now what you are into making this work.
Mighty 392 realy takes up some space hehe..

You must have your motor & transmission mounts rotated up too high. I put in centered motor mounts instead of the offset versions and they seemed to put the motor where it needed to be, better than the offset versions. I ended up with plenty of clearance without even using an offset on the master cylinder.
