I did a search but never came up with an answer...so...can I use a disc/drum master cylinder with drum/drum brakes?My original MC is leaking...instead of buying another one I thought I would buy a bracket and update to a dual cylinder MC...and what is the absolute best MC to use with a non-power drum/drum set(using the original pedal,etc.)Thanks!
I just looked at the articles section and they showed a mod to upgrade the 69-74 Ford E-series vans drum/drum to disc. The project was on a -72 ford E300. I would go to my auto parts dealer, ask to look at a 69-74 Ford E- series van m/c, look at spec's.. Go to a weekend auto rally and talk to owners, etc. Have a great day, chuck
Most of the dual Ford master cylinders are about the same length, the boosters are not.
F100's from 1968 had dual master cylinder drum-drum brakes into the early 1980's. Many of the F250/350's from 1968 had drum-drum dual masters till 1973. Discs were first offered as an option in 1968 on F250/350's, but prolly only 25% came with discs, most were drum.

Coley, I don't have any knowledge about brackets for m/c. The info was from FTE threads and articles at the top of the page. Most after marker auto parts people will help if you take your bracket. Some have counter help knowledgable like numberdummy. I see he has some good info also. It seems like the 60's was a period of change in the auto industry to start the use of disc brakes. I hope I helped,chuck
