I have read most of the other posts on master cylinders (single w/ dual oulets) for 4 wheel disks and I still need a little help. From what I gathered so far I need a m/c from a mid 70's vette w/ 4 wheel disks. Is this one for manual? If not then would'nt a later model aluminum be better? And are the two cylinders equal in pressures. Do I need to switch lines if they are? And lastly we have a lever style proportioning valve should it be in line to front or rear?

THANKS FOR ANY HELP

M.R.B., thanks for pointing me in the direction of that web site. It did help me on the m/c, but I'm still not sure on the proportioning valve. Should it be to the front? That is where we plan on having it becouse you need more rear bias on dirt, right? If someone could help me with this it would be appreciated.

you have a couple of choices that mostly depend of what the non-proportioned bias is ... relative to what you like (or need).

before you put in the valve, evaluate what you have right now

If the car starts out with too much front bias for a heavy track (and you like to add front as the track dries out)... put the valve to the front (or your right front) and start the evening with the valve set to restrict ... and open it up as the track dries out.

or...

If the car has too much rear for a dry track ... put the valve to the rear and shut it down as the track dries out
