  • Brakes: Remote reservoir

    I have dual master conversion by Turner, which is a great conversion by the way.
    my question is, I would like to do a remote reservoir, does anyone have a answer to a master cyl. with a remote that will fit in that space

        Wilwood has several to choose from.

        I've got this one on one 54 wagon and it works great (no booster). I'm putting the same one on another 54 wagon for daily driving (also no booster).

            I'm not exactly clear on what you are asking. I used a Mitsubishi Eclipse master cylinder and also the remote reservoir from Mitsubishi when I installed my Turner Disk brakes. I just modified the original Mitsubishi bracket and used it on my car.

              Why not use the one that Studebaker sold ? Part # 1558699.

                The Studebaker reservoir will only apply to single master cylinders. Most have upgraded to dual master cylinders.

                  I used one of these I got on ebay for 9.00 Reservoir Brake Fluid Fits VW Super Beetle 1971-1979 # CPR113611301L-SB
                  ( 171382379779 ) Doesn't take much space and easy to plumb.

                    This idea looks like the easiest fix
                    thanks

                      this is the type I'm looking for, the VW has a 3/4" bore is not the stude closer to 1"?
                      I know Wilwood has a large selection

                        Does a remote reservoir know or care what size is the master cylinder bore?

                            It's better than that tin can Studebaker had under the floor. The Mitsubishi dual m/c doesn't seem to need much juice to activate. I installed it with the Turner conversion kit and still kept the drums all the way around. I replaced all the brake lines so it took a while to get all the air out but the car stops fine. No hydrovac. The only problem I had was the check valves that came with the kit leaking under pressure. I had to remove the fittings and reinstall with sealant tape. they didn't use a flared fitting which would have been better.
