need master cyl on must ii brake booster

Hi all, I have a must ii ifs complete with disk brake upgrade Granada set up and explorer rear disks in the rear. I am worrieing that the brake booster and master cylinder i had got for the mustang ii would be way too small. I dont want to spend money on a master cylinder so i was wondering what donor cars can i get a master cylinder to fit my needs, Also i know the front brakes use 80 percent of the braking so i should have the bigger resovor for the front and the smaller one for the rear is this right
Thanks sean m conroy

didn't the granada and mustang have the same size brakes???any local parts store should be able to help you out ....and the resevoir for disk brakes is larger because the drum brakes are self-ajusting ...disks just use the fluid to maintain wear ...so if your going to disks front and rear you will need a master from a duel disk unit...

The most commonly used master cylinder in 4 wheel disc applications is from a Corvette. That's the one that comes in all the kits. I'm not sure why you have an aversion to spending money on being safe, though. I would think your life, and perhaps more importantly, the lives of the people around you is worth at least $50.

With rear disc brakes: 1976/80 Granada/Monarch & 1977/80 Lincoln Versailles used the same 1" bore master cylinder & P/B booster. But it's different than the following.

Without rear disc brakes: 1975/77 Maverick/Comet / 1975/78 Mustang II / 1975/80 Granada/Monarch & Pinto/Bobcat used the same 15/16" bore master cylinder and P/B booster.

Why would you want to buy a used master cylinder and/or a P/B booster off one a these cars? At this stage of the game, neither will prolly be any good.

There are three major assemblies you need to have in perfect working condition: Brakes, suspension and steering. Why risk your life or someone elses by using worn out old used crap?
