    They’re just giving that stuff away.

    Better check what MC he is supplying cause the one most kits supply will require a lot of cutting of your strut and frame channel. I believe there are discussions here on this and a long discussion on the 6163Skylark forum you should read.

    I used a 1980 Ford Fairmont MC at 7/8″ bore, fits nice but I am not happy with the “long” pedal. Various other options out there, some cheap some not.

    I think you’re right. You can do a MC delete with BCCP if you ask. Just be aware the big GM MC they supply will require significant cutting, some other MCs not so much. But you will need a 1″ bore with the 5 lug kit, I thinks it uses bigger calipers than the 4 lug. There is a really nice Baer Racing MC called the ReMaster that fits really good at large $$, and an AMC master that shows a disc/drum app as well as drum/drum, needs a residual valve for the rear drums though. One of the guys in that 6163Skylark forum just installed a Wilwood MC that looks like it required some cutting (has pictures you can see without logging in) but probably better than the GM. Of course, ain’t nothing really turnkey.

    ok now what about a brake booster?

    Don’t see where you posted the CPP MC. They should be able to tell you dimensions. If it’s small it would be good info for everyone. What’s the PN?

    Not sure what your question is on the booster. The booster setup is rather unique in these cars and I would keep it if you have it.If you don’t currently have power I would stay with manual brakes. See your service manual for location and type of the power setup, it’s under the dash with a remote vacuum reservoir under the hood. No room for a booster on the MC as is typical with american cars.

    NOTES
    NOTE1: These high-performance items are not eligible for any further discounts or promotional pricing.

    Weighing in at only five pounds, the MCPV-1 aluminum master cylinder has all the features of a modern braking system in one master cylinder. It has a double-adjustable proportioning valve, removable metering valve (for 4-wheel disc brake cars), stop light switch port, larger capacity (1-quart), and a smaller size than a conventional iron master cylinder. It’s approximately the same size as an iron Corvette master cylinder, only much lighter. The MCPV-1 has two circuits: a front circuit with a metering valve for disc front/drum rear brakes, which is removable for 4-wheel disc brakes, and a rear circuit that has the double-adjustable proportioning valve and a maximum rear pressure adjustment. The proportioning valve controls the brake pressure between front and rear brakes, while the rear pressure adjustment controls what the maximum pressure is to the rear brakes. They’re available in two different bore sizes for most brake applications and come with a polished finish.

    Looks nice but you still need to know how long it is. I think the corvette MC it references is quite a bit too large. Also, all the pics I see show outlets on drivers side only, this will be a problem if they don’t make passenger side outlets-see pics. The pics show a Wilwood which required some cutting of strut and frame, and two pics of the Fairmont MC which required a re-positioned notch in the frame flange. Doubt if the 7/8″ Fairmont would work with the larger califpers they use on the 5 lug conversion.

    Look at the 6163Skylark forum Scarebird Disc brake conversion and lots of other brake info here. Use the Search Forum field at the bottom of the page.

    The Fairmont MC is just about 7″ from the mounting face to the nose.

    only thing I ever found on Scarebird were just brackets
