Hey guys, need your help on this one.
What master cylinder could I use to bypass the Power Brakes system on the Regal I am racing ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

the original one thats on it.

just remove the booster, bolt the master back on, shorten the pushrod, and add a spring, and or stop to keep the pedal from coming too far back and the pushrod from falling out.

69 1/2 ton 2wd Chevy is what I used. The hole for the rod is deep so you don't have to worry about the rod falling out.

Since S-10s share so many parts. The MC would be a bolt in and they came with manual brakes.

Running manual brakes allows you to remove the booster from the car and cut weight from the front.

use a manual brake master for a 78 regal if you use a power cyl without a booster you will hav a hard pedal and minimal brakes no good combination. the only downfall of this master is that its steel so its a little heavier than some.another option is a mid eighties jeep cherokee its a small bore alum cyl. and has the benefit of lines out the engine side(no more clearance issues to engine hoop.hope this helps
