Yes this is one real slick looking idea

So are any members running this set up? I sent CPP an email and they sent me the link to their mounting instructions. The instructions give me an idea of the installation but I am also looking for how far down below the frame rail the MC would be exposed. I am hoping only slightly but would like a picture if anyone has one on their trifive so I could see exhaust clearance too.

A few years ago there was a under floor master set up for 55/57 Chevys that came with a new pedal that had to come up through the floor, can't remember if it was Yogi's or someone else that sold it, then it was abruptly taken off the market for some unknown reason.

The CPP (and others) kits do have the pedal through the floor and I feel it would clean up my firewall nice on the wagon build. If I can do it without exhaust issues and clearance problems I would like to try it. I already have a low stance and would like to keep the exhaust I already have so I can always do a shiny MC back up top if I have to.

most often i see them mounted in the dash with the brackets from Kugel, looks good I just wouldn't want to service it down the road.

I agree with the service and access for underdash mounts. I have seen some with firewall reservoirs but that defeats the purpose for me.

The frame access is the most economical route if I can find some information on the forum. It sounds like though this route is not very practical.

Default master cylinder

Guys anyone ever looked into using a slave cylinder to operate a remote located master cylinder (trunk). I saw this thread and thought I'd throw it out and maybe someone else can think it over, it may work or not.

The frame configuration is about the same for all three years. I did the CPP under the floor booster on my 46 truck, very close to the exhaust and not much room at all . If I had it to do all over again I wouldn't do it.

Greg, I am putting a twin turbo SBC in my '55 and I LOVE how you moved your master cylinder over. How has that worked for you? What would you have done differently if you had to do it again? I too plan to run a hyrdroboost.

Thanks!
