Master Cylinder and Transmission mounts

Well, I posted video a while back (before my welder broke <grumble/>) with some shots of the master cylinder bracket, and the transmission mount, but here are a couple of photos for you.

The master cylinder bracket was an excellent purchase, I’m so glad I just spent the money, rather than continuing to fight with it, as it took five minutes to put this in, and I realized that my design would have had several problems!

The Transmission crossmember should work really pretty good though, I need to drill four holes, and finish welding it up, and it should be ready to go.

  1. Can you tell me why you chose the master cylinder without the booster? I have a 53 and I want to get rid of the stock master cylinder as it scares me to have a single MC. Any thoughts? Thanks Dave

  2. Hi Dave,

    I decided to go this route for a couple of reasons. I like the simplicity of manual brakes, and with the proper brake pedal ratio, they are as safe as power brakes. Secondly, this way I don’t have to plumb vacuum lines, or worry about them getting cut or kinked.

    I will see how they behave once it’s on the road, but I think it’ll be fine. I did spend a considerable amount of time talking with people at SSBC and Master Power, etc. before I went this route.

    Take care,
