    Does anyone have a picture of their bracket for putting a duel master cylinder on a single master cylinder Jeep? I would like to upgrade my 64 Jeep. Thanks. Rick

    I might be able to do one better. Pretty sure I have the bracket from a 71. It uses the dual MC with the bale-type hold down for the lid. PM me if interested.

    Thanks Howard, Mike and Tim, wish I would have done this before I put my body back on my Jeep. My 10" brakes work OK, but I bought a set of 11" drums and backing plates complete, and want to upgrade to a duel master cylinder and 11" front and 10" rear brakes. Just collecting parts for now, Thanks again for all the help Guys, Rick

    How are the reservoirs mounted on the firewall? Did you cut a hole in the gasket to MC?

    I installed a dual MC using Herm's bracket. I ran into a number of issues and helped Herm source the line adapters.

    If I had to do it over again, I would go with Howard's design. It looks easier to install, appears to avoid pushrod issues and is better suited to a remote reservoir.

    I made a bracket that bolts to the upper firewall. Yes, I cut a (small) hole in the rubber "liner" of the lid. Put the fitting in the hole I drilled in the lid/cover,
    sealed it with RTV and sandwiched it in with a fender washer and a nut.
