I have installed a front disk,rear drum, non-power brake kit on my 55. No plugs came with the kit for the unused ports on the master cylinder. What size plugs or bolts fit the front and rear ports? Should I use copper washers on the bolts and teflon sealing tape on the threads?.... Thanks

Just bring your M/C to your nearest Ace Hardware....They can fix you up with the brass plugs that you need.

They varry with the Master cylinder, You can also go to your local auto parts store and look for their weatherhead bins they have all the correct adapters and plugs there.

Chuck; I have a master cylinder that came with a disk brake conversion kit. The cylinder has four ports. I'm using the drivers side ports for front and back brakes. The two ports on the other side of the cylinder are not used,so they need to be plugged

Oh, OK!
I was wondering, where did the other 2 ports come from!
