Got a part number for this master cylinder?

Well, I found the part number for the MC. Anyone have , or know where I can get, the correct proportioning valve?
BTW, once the maching & all the parts have been procured, about how long does this swap take? I've seen the stud "issue" thread, but the rotors come with studs. Why wouldn't I want to use them?

I would like to see a list of part numbers since the Wagner listed by Scarebird is no longer available and some master cylinders listed in the disk brake thread are for use with power booster brakes and not for manual brake systems. Curiosity.

Just to get the list going:

Doctor Diff Aluminum Master Cylinder 1-1/32" bore with 4 stud adapter for B/E Bodies with manual brakes. It is new and will set you back a C-Note.

go to rock- auto / dodge /1973/ b-200/ brakes /master cylinder then look at the ones that say front disc rear drums for $22./$29. pick what your comfortable with. I'd use a brand name.

I was planning on doing the disc upgrade, but don't have the budget for the full project yet. I have developed a leak at my single circuit master cylinder, so my question is this:
Can I do this upgrade is stages, ie will the master cylinder for the disc conversion work with the factory drum brakes? Or is my van going to be off the road until I save up enough pennies for the full conversion?
Thanks!

Yes, the master cylinder that I got from Doctor Diff has a 1-1/32" bore which works for drum and drum/disk. Make sure you get the adapter plate that converts the two hole MC to the old four hole mounting on the van. You will need to bend up some new brake lines to fit the MC.
