Have been a long time lurker on this VMF forum but mainly contribute on the Aussie Mustang forums, been loving all the cars on the forums so thought I'd throw in the link to my almost completed work in progress, I think this is probably the appropriate thread to throw it in

This is an intimidating thread to post to, there is a lot of really nice, creative work here. I just finished up my new gauge cluster and figured, why not... 1456084017304.jpg

Looking good there pal. I like the whites. What color instrument lighting? :)
Red. most everything in the car is black with red accents. My preference for gauges just happens to be white face. My eyes see them better in the day. the metal part to my gauge cluster is all hacked up now getting them all to sit just right... they were all slightly larger than stock, so I had to do some surgery to get them in and firm.

Is this to good to be true? I just picked up a 1990 ranger master cylinder to replace the stock cast iron master in my 65 fastback. It's virtually a direct bolt in, the ports are on the and are correct side, and are standard 7/16" and 9/16" inverted flare it's got a 15/16" bore and all the same measurements as the original. My car has front Granada discs and stock rear drums. The ranger is also a discs drum set up. Can anyone see why this won't work? Most people seem to be using the 2000 ranger MC but it has the metric fittings on the wrong side and 1" bore, which equals a harder pedal to depress.

Thanks for the tip, I don’t see any issues, everything seems right. I’m going to check this out too. I have 72 discs on my 66 using a 71 master cylinder. It has 1” piston and no residual check valve. This may very well be on my winter list.

I realize this thread has ancient roots, but since Husk revived it, I'll throw in some of mine. There's more, because I've modded the heck out of this thing, but these are the threads I've documented over the last couple of years.

Explorer rear end cost analysis and US Mags Rambler Wheel threads...

DON'T JUMP!!!!

I just went threw this earlier this year. The Ranger master has a tilted reservoir to mount on an angled firewall. Looks totally like a kludge job IMHO on a vertical firewall. HOWEVER, the single year 1998 Winstar (I think) has the same 1" master with a reservoir for a vertical firewall. Add a $11 residual valve for the rears and your good to go...

Check this out: FYI FORD MustangSteve's Ford Mustang Forum » Driver Side Port Master Cylinder for Cobra Brakes (Steve/Ultrastang?)

Get one for a non-cruise control car or plan on finding a screw in plug for the bottom port, ask me how I know...
