I run a Hobby Stock and have to run a Master on the firewall. I just purchased a new car that used to be a Stock car and the front bars run close to where the Master goes. Anyone know of a very small stock master that I can mount on my firewall? Thanks for any info.

a 65 chevy pick up with manual brakes has a little round master cyl. it only has one line coming out but it may work.

hey finally some one with the same type problems I had. I bought a master cylinder for a older chevy truck, its a single stage I guess but it had the one hole coming from the front and one just above it that was plugged off so I took plug out and with a few brass fittings have two lines from the cylinder one for front and back. I was told that this would not have good brakes and if one line developed a hole and leaked you would have no brakes but It has a very firm pedal and will lock all 4 wheels on a dime. I even un hooked one of the brake lines going to the front and left it hanging just to see if I would have brake since the lines are directly to the master cylinder even if its single stage I still had brakes not the best but I had brakes. I would suggest checking all lines to make sure that they are good. I will post a pic when I get home tonight so you can see cause I beat myself up over this until I got it fixed. Its a small master with round top. post pics soon
