  • Cruiser master cylinder

    My 64 Cruiser has power brakes with a dual reservoir master cylinder. Were dual reservoir cylinders factory equipment on 64 models? I plan to rebuild and reuse it.Thanks.

    If it's a 4 bolt M/C, most likely a mid 70's Chrysler. If you look in April 2001 Turning Wheels, in the co-operator pages, I think the number is there.

      Dual master cylinder was standard equipment on Studebaker cars from 1963 - 1966, except for the Standard model and cars with disc brakes. I am assuming from this that your Cruiser has power drum brakes. If your Cruiser has power disc brakes (in the front) then someone has changed the master cylinder.

      Edit due to typo

        also.....I'm sure the MC is different from power drums vs. drums. It may only be the rod, not sure. I'm unsure as to whether the AMC or equivalent is a direct bolt on for PB.....BTW, I think it's a 2-bolt......

          A stock Stude drum set up will need residual check valves (10 pound or so) in the MC front and rear. A stock Stude disc set up had no residual check valves. Probably the reason Stude used the single MC on the disc brake cars.

            Our 64' Cruiser has power drum brakes. I replaced the master cylinder (dual) with Carquest part number BRK E 56193, it is a direct bolt on and even the brake lines bolt up. I was told it is a AMC/Jeep master cylinder.

              It is an AMC/Jeep, and yes it is a direct bolt on.
