Hey guys, I've seen several cars with newer style dual reservoir master cylinders and was thinking about upgrading my 57 so could someone tell me what cars they are for? Thanks, Chris.

As far as I know, the dual reservoir master cylinders are only needed for disc brake conversions. I have a AAJ front brake conversion kit in combination with a "A B E Body Mopar style factory replacement master cylinder for disc brakes" and a "SSBC PROP-BLOCK adjustable proportioning valve and distribution block"

I'm mainly looking to upgrade for safety reasons, I just don't like the idea of relying on a single reservoir system. I'd much rather have the separate front and rear system in case a leak were to occur. :Idaho Bob: :affraid:

I just went through such an upgrade. I used an adapter to run a small GM booster running a GM dual master cylinder. I've had a lot of grief getting it to work with my AAJ discs up front. I think I had a set of bum calipers, but I don't know if I'm out of the woods yet. You can read more on a previous post of mine. The front kept locking solid. I've heard that the master cyl. out of a 68 C- body (fury, monaco, etc.) is a direct bolt in for the stock mounting holes. That might be a good route for you. Also if you need computer bent lines from fine lines, I have them. I bought them without needing them. Still in the box, real cheap!

I may watch this thread closely as I would like to do this upgrade to my 58. Wouldn't it be nice if someone got very detailed and documented each step of the process? I'm good at mimicking but not very innovative on my own. I'd like to convert over to a dual power master cylinder first making sureit works well with the original 4 way drums...and then converting to the front discs. A two step process. What do you think Chris...want to schedule it for this fall and do the conversion to our cars at the same time? Just a thought.

Maybe Big M could chime in here and confirm what master cylinder and brake booster would bolt right in. I like the thought of the 68 C-body type that would bolt right in as Bluebird57 mentioned.
