Brake master cylinder conversion
I want to drive the 66 Suburban so I have added a 1979 C10 front suspension to gain the disc brakes and power steering. What are you all using for a dual master cylinder that will work with the stock power brake booster and work with the front disc brakes with original drum brakes? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Brake master cylinder conversion
Probably be easier for you to not use the stock power booster brake set-up and go with a unit that is close to the newer disc/drum set-up - what about the brake booster set-up from your parts truck that will are least get you in the ball park for the disc brakes. You will need a proportional valve also designed for disc/drum balance. You're dealing with a lot of mismatched units that will need a little engineering balance. :thumbsup:

Thanks for your idea! I probably will have to use the donor truck engineering as it worked on that truck well. I kept those parts too. Twin system braking just makes good sense on a driver suburban
