Default Dual Bowl Brake Queries....66 Mustang with Power Booster

Hi Guys,

I am contemplating replacing the current single bowl master cylinder with a dual bowl one for my "66 that has drum brakes all-round.

I am confused at the moment regarding the clearance to the shock tower and also whether or not i need to replace my existing single bowl booster.

Can i just get the dual bowl master cylinder and bolt it up to my current booster?

Will there be push rod issues??

Is it all too hard, should i just stay with single bowl?

The car is not driven too much, but we are planning some long trips once it is back on the road.

A master cylinder with two bowls is a necessity. It is very unsafe and it that one bowl fails you are down to nothing except your parking brake.

Booster should hook up fine, take it with you to the parts store and see if the master cylinder and the booster are compatible.

I just did a brake swap on mine commonly known as the granada swap

There is "ZERO" dual bowl master that will fit the original Factory booster.

If a after market booster---- maybe???? Just buy one try it, buy another try it, so on.

Thanks Guys.

Dan...where can i get this master cylinder?

The booster appears to be the original style bendix type.

I have had it recently rebuilt.

Why would it only work with auto trans? Is there something going on differently at the firewall with a manual? If so, how would they be different?

I would bet there is interference with the z-bar or clutch rod or both.

So do manuals only have manual brakes? My '68 was a 3 speed manual with manual brakes and power steering...

Anyone know?
