Good morning guys. My '65 GT (front disc/rear drum) still has the hurt-me single stage master cylinder... it's got to go. I've read about swapping m/c's AND MATCHED PROPORTIONING VALVES from later model Maverics, T-birds, ect. Most all vendors stock new dual stage m/c's ('67 and up), can't seem to find anyone with the 'proper' p-valve to match. I imagine I'd need to match a retro unit with a diferent pushrod as well. Anyone have a source? Maybe some p/n's? FYI: Currently manual brakes (no booster), absolutely have to maintain the overdeveloped right quadrecepts (big cam, big valves, no vaccum ) Then again, with the 'King Cobra' clutch, I may wind up looking like Earl Campbell

Master Poser Brakes, Stainless Steel Brakes and many Mustang vendors sell an adjustable prop. valve that works well plus it can be reset.
