I have a 65 and would like to convert to a dual master cyl.
Does anyone know where to get one? Or can a person just use a dual master cyl off a later mustang? Thanks, Stormy

I've been told the '74 maverick m.c. works well. I just bought one and will be putting it in within the next few weeks. We'll see how it works.

Stormy, you can get a master cylinder for a 67 mustang and bolt it right on the car. You will need a couple of reducing fittings that most any good auto store will have. I just converted a 65 and my 66 over - my brakes on both of these cars are power - You will need a low profile booster if you want to go with power drum brakes using a 67 master cyl.

National parts depot has these for 249.00. You can get a master cylinder for 20 bucks rebuilt about anywhere. All I did was remove the line from the dist block on the inner fender, put a plug in it and bent a new line for the front brakes. Simple job if you are a decent mechanic. I can send you photos of mine if you like. Hope this helps.

If you already have front disks, view my previous post here .

Can't help with changeovers for drums, unless that is what the 67 MC is for.

If you convert drum brakes to the dual master cyl don't forget the combination valve too otherwise you're wasting your time. That valve is a shuttle that blocks off a failed half of your brakes allowing the remaining half to stop the car. I'm NOT refering to a proportioning valve which is used on a disc brake setup.
