My master cylinder and 11" booster was from Right Stuff. It was intended for a disc/drum setup and had a proportioning valve (PV2) attached beside the MC.Has anybody made the master cylinder and brake booster work in their chevelle??
Any modifications to the firewall?
Actually the height of the tie rod end (by spindle) did not seem to move much and the arm being a little further out the drag link and the ball joint movement seemed to have picked up the slack.Lew, did you do anything about the substantially different length of the steering arm and the height of the outer tie-rod end?
Thanks for the suggestion Pete. I recently installed power steering with a Saginaw P series pump and 800 series gear box. I'll have to do more research about using a hydro boost but I like the idea of having more space under the hood. The problem with trying to customize, save money and not buy a kit, is not knowing how everything will fit. If I knew what parts were compatible it would be easier to pull parts from a salvage yard, rock auto or ebay.I wouldn't bother with the F body booster. Too much work to make it fit. You can mount any master on a stock '64-'66 Chevelle booster. Or better yet, find yourself a hydroboost out of a wrecked Chevy truck. That's what I did.
The Camaro master can be used but the lines come out from the engine side. I used a master from a 2006 Trailblazer SS.
For the brake lines, I would use nicopp lines which won't corrode and are easy to bend. Get a 25' roll of 3/16" and 1/4".An old neighbor steered me in this direction. Now I just need to get the right master cylinder, booster and brake lines.
