Okay, this has probably been discussed to death. I want to upgrade to a dual master cylinder purely for safety. I have a technician friend doing the work, but I need the parts. I looked at the Mopar Action 2004 article, as recommended on the EVBC, but it's all a different language. Does anyone know the part numbers for the dual master cylinder, proportioning valve, and whatever else I might need. Thanks! Becca (clueless).

Are you just adding a dual master cylinder, but keeping drum brakes all around?

You only need the proportioning valve if you're converting to discs up front.

Eric's article here-> http://www.earlycuda.org/tech/dualmaster.htm

is the best place for that.

There are multiple options when it comes to a dual master cylinder. None are "right" but they all offer different things. Read this-> http://www.enbro.com/cuda/tech/tom_condran/index.html to get an idea about what dual master cylinder is right for you.

Personally I used a rebuilt standard cast iron master cylinder with the 1 1/32" bore, it came from Napa, part number 10-1571 made by Cardone. One reservoir is larger than the other.

But like I said, you may want something else.

Yes, thanks! I was checking into what to do for brakes too.
