Master cyl swap with disc brakes

I currently have 4 non power drum brakes on my 67, and I think I may purchase this conversion kit for front disc brakes. Will I still be able to use my current master cylinder, or will I have to purchase a different one? I guess I'll also need to buy a proportioning valve?

Seems like a good price, plus I can use my 10% off. The photo must be a stock photo used by others, as it's the exact photo used by another seller that is selling for a couple hundred more (but does contain booster and master cyl)

Re: Master cyl swap with disc brakes

disc and drum MCs are different.

Power and manual MCs are different.

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

You will need to change the mc and you need the combination valve.
