    Agreed! I just found this thread and printed out two copies. This is printed book worthy!

    I disagree somewhat too.
    It's definitely more difficult but also very achievable. I've bought lots of traditional parts from all over the US and predominately from HAMB members. I've got an Aussie shipper that's based in LA and I get the parts sent there and they eventually arrive in Sydney and yes there are costs involved with the exchange rate and shipping fees etc.

    Still love reading this build of yours @ Dennis Lacy
    Ok on the front brakes you used Boling Brothers backing plates with the early 3/8 BP ,1940 drums , the small spacer on the spindle to step the hub out . So I may have missed it but did you use the 1940 style hubs also?

    Tim, if you look back to page one, post 28 there are two pics from the trans side of the K member which clearly show the 4 holes the mount bolts to.
    Mac Van Pelts site shows a good pic of the mount assembly

    Hi Dennis,

    You do great work!

    Can you tell me what master cylinder this is please. Is it a 1965 Mustang aluminum body? The cast steel has a 1" bore and the aluminum 21mm bore. I have a 39-48 MS in my home made setup which works good but am interested in more on the MS you use.

    I'm also curious about the MS fitting sizes since I have 1/4". Are these for 3/16" lines on the Mustang or ?? unit?
