  • quick Turner Brake reality check

    finally got all the brake parts I'd collected in one place, of course all bought used and cheap, am mocking up/buying hardware etc. to make this work. Quick question - on a C-K, using a Turner dual MC bracket, is the centerline of the MC bore below or above the bolt holes that hold the bracket to the frame? For some reason I was expecting it to be above, but looking at the pic on his web site it looks like I have the right bracket, but it's not 100% clear.

    Just FYI I am using the Turner bracket but instead of the MC he recommends I have a Mitsubishi one that I got from JP with nipples for remote reservoirs. Same 1" bore as stock. That sucker is LIGHT! Will just put it in with the 10# residual valves for now and keep the drum brakes, but if a disc setup shows up for an affordable price I can always be tempted

    thanks,

    I got a Mitsibushi resivoir, waiting for MC.............BUT if you lose one rubber hose from fuid container, you lose all fliud the resivoir, it is not DIVIDED. You will also need to make a "dust cover" for the plunger.

      Bill, you need a dual reservoir, or two singles to avoid that issue, maybe $10 each at a bone yard or on ebay. You could make your own with two plastic bottles.

        I know, but think about how they got around US DOT "dual MC" reqirement by providing a dual chambered MC but making the resivoir useless. I know that mine came off a 1995 Eclipse and now wonder if they still use that system today. Technically they are meeting the MC issue but failed with the way brake fluid is stored. Kind of scary.

          Not really, the amount of fluid that actually moves through the system should be completely contained in the MC, the reservoir is just for insurance. that said when I put mine in I will likely use two small reservoirs simply for easy identification of the location of an issue, should one arise.
