Master Cylinder for split circuit DRUM brake system

Post by robbar1 » Tue Apr 24, 2018 7:44 pm

Cross post from 61-63 Thunderbird forum: Has anyone tried and have any feedback for ABSPowerBrake.com master cylinder for split system? It fits with existing power brake booster and under the brace. It is on page 100 of their online catalog or see pic below. Company said it would work on disc/drum or drum/drum.

I dont want to do disc conversion (I have 14" KH wheels) and am fine with drum for the limited driving I do... but like the dual reservoir/circuit for safety. Any feedback appreciated.

I found this link which looks like a slightly better albeit tight solution - with a more standard looking master vs plastic.viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6504&hilit=dual+mas ... 3&start=15

Just completed the conversion to a split circuit Master Cylinder for my '62 convertible with drums all around. Works great and allowed me to retain the T-Bird's original power brake booster and maintain the original "Jelly Jar" look of the Master Cylinder. I wanted to remain as close as possible to the OEM look. No modifications were required to the shock tower to firewall brace and there is plenty of clearance - great fit. Pricey, but I felt it was worth it.
Got my parts from Stainless Steel Brake Corp.
