Flatfender Master Cylinders

I have a '51 M-38 with a 350 Chevy and T-18 trans. The clutch is hydraulic so the guy who built the jeep used a combined M/C to run the clutch and brakes. There is a dual swinging pedal set up to drive the M/C. The distance between the input rods is 2.50 inches. I just finished building a DANA 44 front axle with disk brakes and would like to convert the single M/C into one for the brakes and one for the clutch. I would like the brakes to have two chambers. Has anyone got a set up like this? If so, what M/Cs did you use, what did it take to install them, etc.? Photos would be nice too!! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Loco.

Re: Flatfender Master Cylinders

I think the easiest way to do this, would be to contact one of the aftermarket brake companies like Wilwood, and get a dual MC setup for your brakes, and a seperate clutch master. I bet it wouldn't be any more expensive then the MC that you are looking for, if they even make such an animal. Most integrated brake and clutch MC'c where used on older vehicle, and only have one resevoir for the brakes. I have never seen rebuilt units like this, only new, so they usually run more than $200.
