View Full Version : New Master Cylinder
05-10-2006, 10:34 PM
Just installed a new master cylinder and all new hardlines Saturday. Worked very well. I started around 9:00 and finished at noon. I used a master for a 69 camaro drums all around. I feel a lot safer since the one I was running was probably original and also a single feed. Since then I finished painting a Vega I'd been working on over the winter, thought it might be intereting to see one of these again. I haven't seen one around for years, I guess that's why I had to buy it last fall.

There was a vega wagon running at the drag strip last weekend. A buddy in high school drove a vega wagon, which we pinstriped ourselves. Terry.

That's gotta be like racing a coffin. This thing feels like a go-cart on the street.

I once had a vega wagon, and actually I liked it pretty good, had original engine, lots of people put the small block v8's in them, I bought the car for 40.00 as I remember.

Thanks dseale4888. Which one and do you know of any other cars? I would like to go to the two line master cylinder.

The 2 line one that came with my power disc brake kit is one that came on the 1969 corvettes. If you want to see what it looks like just click on my link below.

I think it is around a '67 or 68. If you get one for the Vette with drum brakes you should be all set.

I'm sure you are aware, but just as a reminder......Whichever you decide to use,make sure you bench bleed it.

I put a 68 chevelle drum/drum master in my 57. bolted up to the bottom two bolts of the four stock bolts. Had to adjust the rod from the pedal a little. Also ran a new line and block to connect to the line to the rear brakes located on the passenger side front crossmember. Plugged the space in the existing block there, bleed the lines and life was good. Got a scare from the old single cyl as I pulled up to my garage and hit the dividing post. I was going slow and no damage to the 57 but it knocked the post off the footing and damaged some siding. Knew then and there I need to go to the dual cyl.
