Guys, what master cylinders should be on my late model. I'm driving this car that was purchased as a roller that needed only a motor. I have now driven it and I think it may have the wrong M/C's on it... Or at least one of them is wrong. I've got all of the rear cranked into it and it still won't get loose going in on the brake.

I put 1 inch bore Howe master cylinders on mine, I have good brakes. Using Dynalite calipers.

Don't take this personal but have you double checked to make sure something isn't bound up?

A smaller bore master cylinder would generate higher system pressure resulting in greater breaking forces.

Had the same problem on my mod last year. Get ya a rebuild kit for your MC's. They're really easy to rebuild.

Thanks for the sug's... I have ALWAYS run 1" and 7/8" M/C's on my mods... This thing has dual 7/8" m/c's on it. I'm going to put some guages on it and try rebleeding the rears... It doesn't look like anything is bound up, but it looks like there is a possibility that one of the calipers is not working 100%. I'll try it and get back to you.
