Master Brake Cylinder

Converted to rear disc brakes on a 69. The MBC set up is a 9" Chrome set up and the MBC has the same size lines, front and back and reservoir holes are the same size. A local shop said this would work, I have heard otherwise. What is the right answer?

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

Correction, the line is larger in the rear of the MBC, 9/16 fitting, the front 1/2

With my limited knowledge, If you use a disc/disc proportioning valve you should be ok.

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

There is a specific master cylinder for disc/disc applications, I am unsure they differ. I don't think the size of the connector makes any difference.

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

Right Stuff said all I had to change was the distribution block. MC is fine. FYI
