    I want to swap my 70 RR from Power to Manual brakes because of low vacuum. The car is originally a power disc car. I’ve converted the front discs to the 11.75. Car will be a street strip car. Just looking for a direction on MC sizes and mounting and anything else I might need to know. Anyone make a kit?

    Thanks!

    Get ahold of Cass aka Dr. Diff. 15/16" master cylinders are his best seller, but he also has 1 1/32". He will have everything you need.

      Have you considered just adding a vacuuming pump? Would be fairly simple to do versus swapping everything

      Everything is new and dry right now so swapping shouldn’t be too bad. Not sure of Everything needed for vacuum pump setup.

      You just buy the vac pump and it becomes the vac source for your booster. They work very well only downside is they're noisy.

      Contact Dr. Diff, but you will also need the firewall plate for a non-power set up.
