That is always something to consider. I was even thinking of trying to get a Corvette assembly from a junk yard to try for fitment. Unfortunately, the dashboard is out of my car so I can't take any measurements to see if the specs match up, so I was hoping one, or more, members might have considered this solution already. I'm also concerned that the MC size might not be enough for the 4 wheel drum brakes on a vehicle as heavy as a 55 Constellation.

I have been perusing the Project Blogs and Forums, and couldn't find an answer or opinion on this.
Has anyone considered, or tried, using a Power Brake upgrade using the MC/Booster Combo with Swing Pedal? AS an example, something dexigned like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/7-DUAL-Power- ... ksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
or
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Und ... id=p2047675.c100752.m1982
If this would work, I understand having to lose the fresh air duct on the drivers side, and the need to reinforce the firewall in that area, but it seems like this would be a feasible way to upgrade to a dual MC without having to build or modify the brake pedal.
TIA,
John

Need 2 +30 pistons for 55 Constellation, 352 ci engine. Hopefully someone has a couple of good, used, 30 over, pistons for a reasonable price.
Thanks,
John

Try putting the old rotor back in, and check to make sure that the points are properly adjusted and the condenser is not grounded out.

I still have one. Bought it when I had an old MG-A and had to sync the carbs. A bit tricky but once you get the hang of it, they work pretty good. It is nothing but a basic device to make sure you have equal air flow through the carbs.

Ross, where are you located? I could use a '55 since I have some "questionable" components on mine.
