So I want to get a dual master cylinder that will fit my 64 barracuda, and i'm not sure what may fit. i was told a 67 dart master cylinder would fit, but i went on ebay and there are so many different kinds. help! please (:

are you going to front disc ?? or staying with drum ?? any year A body master will fit,1967 is the first year of a dual master cylinder,,you can even use a more modern master say off of a dakota, those mount with a 2 bolt pattern,and you would need the adapter plate to go from 4 to 2 bolts macinic racing has those,,

decide if your staying drum.drum or disc /drum,,then get the matching porportioning valve

I am surely going to go to disc/drum. Cool, so one off of like a 67 dart would work okay? the only thing is like on the one that i had, the actuator cylinder was attached to the master cylinder and all the ones i see online don't have it.

So I guess my dad says that we can attach an actuator cylinder, so it's all good. I just bought one on ebay, it's new and for a '67 barracuda. thanks for the help!

i dont know what your caling the actuator cylinder,,,,do you meen the push rod ?? use the push rod from your current master,,make sure if you still have drum/drum that the master is for drum /drum,,,

Yeah, i meant the push rod. We got that whole thing figured out, but i'm confused about what you are saying with the drum/drum. the cylinder doesn't matter, it's the proportioning valve, no?

thats a good question,,,,im pretty sure the resovor is bigger on a disc brake master,,at least is it on the factory iron masters,,,,look at a 1970s disc brake master cylinder,,you will see one section is bigger (front brakes) and the other is smaller,,,but do a search on rock auto .com and compare
