Been a long time, and a long story so I'll spare you the details. I need some advice and you guys are the ones I come to for it.
My car--65 convertible, 289 V-8 4 speed, power steering, drum brakes all around.
I don't feel comfortable leaviing my costly ground up resto to a single res mastewr cylinder. I bought a dual res cylinder for a 67. You know what's coming and I'm sorry, I'm sure it's been asked before but here goes
Pre bent stainless steel tubing.
Which set would I get?
the ones for the 65?
or the ones for the 67?
Will the ones for the 67 conform to my car?
Will the ones for the 65 fit the new cylinder?
I'm so .

Get the 67 ones from the master to distribution block. Then you will need to do a bit of local parts store chasing for some fittings and a bit of engineering to splice in the extra line. No big deal and quite easy.

Tony, if you have a vise, a tubing bender, double flaring tool, and a good pair of thumbs, you can do a great job on your own. You will need some 3/16 brake lines, a 4 hole brass junction block, and some 3/16 inverted flare fittings. All available at your local parts store.
