    If you are thinking about new metal brake lines try
    www.OldTimeParts.com. I like their product and service.
    You should be able to get the soft hoses at your flaps.

    My Avanti's are early 63's which have a brace on the underside of the hood that a dual master cylinder hits, so I had to go back to the single (original) master. I did however use one from Ed Reynolds that had been sleeved with stainless steel, so that should at least add to the life of the part.

    Warren there is a way to adjust a dual MC to fit under the hood of the early Avantis. I believe it involves using some spacers on upper bolts where the power booster mounts to firewall to give the MC a little bit of downward slope. Check out Bob Johnstone's web site.

    Nostalgic Motors in Michigan might carry a conversion kit (ie, the necessary steel lines). They do offer kits to change from the NLA early-70s master cylinder to a more common m/c.

    This would indicate that the rear seal of the M/C is leaking. The fix is to remove and rebuild/replace the M/C.

    If your M/C is the original single circuit type, this would be a good time to consider converting it to a dual type for safety considerations.

    It'll soon stop leaking, but the car won't stop at all once the fluid leaks out.

    What he said!

    I agree. This is definitely a case of where safety trumps purism and originality. Go for the dual master cylinder.

    started a topic 63 Avanti master cylinder.

    63 Avanti master cylinder.

    I've a slight leak where the m/c connects to the power booster. According to the parts catalog there is no gasket between these two surfaces. What would you do? Making a gasket? Using permatex liquid gasket?
Working...
