What MC can I use to convert the single resevoir MC over
to a dual MC on this 63 Lark cruiser with power disc brakes ?

It can use the same unit as the conversion kits sold for the Avanti. The disc brake system is the same for Larks.

I'll be able to use those brakes off the blue witch after all!

By the way, how's the Hawk comming along?

Lotsa Larks!

From my thread on Racing Studebakers forum :

"I found this today ... I think that this is the master I used, I was looking at it
now that I have the 4 wheel discs on, and its looking kinda "icky" after being
on there for over 10 years. I think I will stop by Autozone and buy a new
master cylinder to be ready for my Cobra brakes which I will order soon.

"Here is what you will need. 1 ea. NAPA/United master cylinder 36307 (or Bendix 11515; this unit fits a
variety of '71-'75 Mopars, but a specific model to nail it to is a '71 Dodge Polara, 360 ci V-" "

Thanks for the info. I pulled out my 2001 april issue of Turning Wheels and will use Stan's advice as well.
