    I have a power brake kit from jamco suspension that should fit a shoebox

    [​IMG]

    it look like that the brake pedal shall be mounted outside the original master cylinder

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have not a assembly instruction to it or i not have fond it

    [​IMG]

    Her's the old master cylinder removed

    I think mayby to modyfi the kit so i not need put the old master cylinder inside the new pedal holder.
    If i do that will i move the new master cylder assy. closer to the frame
    I can get som problems with the pushrod that it hit the gearbox member
    If i move it there will be more room for the headers/exhaust system

    I'd contact Jamco to see if they can help you out with the missing assembly instructions . Seeing as you're in Sweden , an e-mail might be your best/only choice .

    **EDIT** you could also give HOTTWHEELZ a PM right here on the HAMB .

    Hey Stefan,check out my build thread.I did some modification for the Jamco's mastercylinder bracket,its on the first page.I hope there's some help for you about them.
    The brake pedal will be too center,so there wont be enough room for the gas pedal without any modifications..

    Quoting post #22 back in Oct 2009: Newcommer to this forum - in fact my first post, I must comment this whole build is taking place in a garage on my farm. The cars are mine (and my two sons) and on "the other side of the doors" are a full stable with horses and sheep ;) .

    [​IMG]

    I have weld it up in the frame

    [​IMG]

    I put the parts up for a test

    [​IMG]

    the pedal is now in orignal place after moving the kit nearer the frame

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Good job , Stefan . Looks good .
    I'll be doing something similar in the near future with a custom dual master setup . We did it already in (HAMB'er) Legend544's shoebox , so I have a perfect model to copy for mine :) ! I have to gather up the disc brake stuff yet - till then , it's drum brakes for me ...

    Figured I'd add a couple pics of what we came up with . It mounts in front of the crossmember just as original and fits to the original pedal , eliminating the long rod (it's non-booster , so it fits perfectly) . Pics are from mock-up stage , BTW - it's all plumbed now and works great .

    Looking good Mr. T :) !

    I was looking for this tool the other day:

    [​IMG]

    Any chance you know where it is? (Link to larger image: vwnettet.dk)

    Or could you possibly make a copy of this for removing door sprints?
