I run a G-Metric car and have been using power brakes and I want to find a master cylinder that will work without a booster. I heard from someone that a MC out of an S-10 will work. I want to retain the stock pedal so if anyone knows of a year, make, or model that is a direct bolt in application I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

I got one for a mid 70's chevy 1/2 ton pickup it bolted right up where the booster used to be.I had to modify the push rod from the pedal and make up a couple lines from the master to the poportion block but was an easy install.The best thing is it's a piece you can get at napa.I will have to look but I think the box with the part number is in my shop somewhere.Let me know if you need it.

I just took the booster off and mounted the m/c to the fire wall. you will have to make a longer rod from the pedal and the brakes will be pretty firm but it works fine for me, but I've got big feet lol.

The early '70s Cameros w/Manual Disc brakes work the best. Bolt up and make alot of line pressure.

I used a single outlet master last year was good till you have a brake line break and then you have no brakes.
I would use one off a 69 Chevy 1/2 ton pick up. they have 2 outlets plus the hole for the rod goes deeper in the the master to hold the rod really good.
