Look for a 58-60in housing to use, you can buy the metric kit from Day Motorsports for about $100.00, as for the master cylinder any Chevy 70's manual should work, I have used the ones from a 72 Nova and have had good luck with them, im sure some are better than others or if you are able get a set of Wilwoods.

The 9 inch ford is the one to get.

If you can't work em in close & git em in your face with their orange landing gear down, don't bother taking the safety off......
