1970 camaro. added rear disc brakes

Hello all i have a 400sbc in my 1970 camaro and I converted the rear brakes to disc with a kit from "right stuff detailing" I am curious should I convert my manual master cylinder to a more modern unit?? If so any links or details would be great. Thanks in advance

I'd only do it if required to match the system up with rear disc, if it seems like its doing OK I would leave it alone.

Agreed. As a general rule of thumb, it is most important to match up the master cylinder to your front brakes. If braking is good, then I would leave as is. If you find the rear is locking up before the front, then I would look into a prop valve.

Did you pull the residual pressure valve out of the MC port for the rear brakes? Or did you get a new MC with your RS kit?
