Re: 1966 original front metallic brake shoes
Cars that had the semi-metallic brake shoe option uses a master cylinder that had a 7/8 inch bore all the way back to 57 on passenger cars and Corvettes, standard asbestos based shoe cars had a m.c. with a 1 inch bore. I kept my 1 inch bore m.c. whenever I used metallic shoes, and the standard drums that came with asbestos shoes. Parts counter guys tried to sell me the special drums for the metallic shoes, but my originals worked just fine. I think the drums that actually came on cars factory equipped with metallics may have been finned.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.
