PLEASE HELP!!!! I'm having problems with my 63' f100. I have read every thread on master cylinder swap but cannot find anyone that says what master cylinder from what car I can swap out to use on my 63' iam going to put disc brakes on soon but my master brake cyl. Is leaking and dripping on my foot and I have to pump the brakes to stop. I know not safe. Thanks for any info.
I have the same issue on my '63 F100. I'm getting ready to install a power booster and since one of my front single piston cylinders is leaking, I want to replace/upgrade both front cylinders. I noticed that my rear wheels have dual piston cylinders. Those are working fine so I will just be changing out the front.
EDIT: Oops, just realized you are talking master cylinder and I am talking wheel cylinders. Sorry for the thread hijack. FWIW, you could consider the same power brakes upgrade which includes a dual master cylinder. It is $300 and is sold as completely bolt on, no mods necessary. http://www.classicperform.com/Store/...ck/4852BBD.htm. I have opted to do this first, instead of the front disk upgrade. I'll see how it goes and can always go to front disks later.
Just about any master cylinder of at least 1 inch diameter will do. Any ford car or truck up till now...

I took a master cylinder off a 86 ford ranger. Did not have the power booster just the M/C got all the brake lines on with the new plumbing on today. Works great. Bolted right on just had to cut the rod down about a 1 1/2" down and it all bolted on now I need to figure out the brake lights
