I've been watching Top Gear going on 8 or 9 years now, and was expecting quite a lot out of the new show, but to the wife and I it just didn't deliver. The hosts seemed almost robotic at times and seemed uncomfortable. Almost like they don't have the passion that the wonderful British hosts have. But, it's the first episode so there's plenty of time and room for improvement, so we'll keep watching it to see if it gets better.

John, make absolutely sure that the line outlets are on the passenger's side of the master cylinder before you buy.

Start here, 1986 Ford LTD Crown Victoria, $14.99 from Oreilly auto parts and IIRC, has the outlets on the correct side. Part #10-1518. And yeah, it's probably made in China but at least it's priced accordingly.

Oreilly Auto

Also, IIRC, this is the master cylinder that I used on my '56 Patrician, and had zero issues using a master cylinder that came from a car that originally had a disc/drum combination, because I didn't have a proportioning valve to contend with. If you use a modern master cylinder that does give you un-equal braking, you can always add an adjustable proportioning valve and dial it in to your liking. The only time I've had to do that was with a 4 wheel disc setup I did on my old '49 Hudson.

I would do it a little different from Phil's version, that is, find a master cylinder with passenger's side outlets instead of driver's side. That way, the lines are easier to access and you don't have to drill the bracket like he did, see the pic I posted.

Let me do a little research and I'll find the appropriate one.

That's the best kind of modifications IMHO, the reversible kind.

Glad to help. I'm not entirely sure where that picture came from, I found it on the 'net years ago and thought it was worth keeping.

The best way to put a modern dual line master cylinder on a frame mounted Packard is to do it like this, that way all your parts can be sourced locally.
