    I made a bracket for the duel master by using an original single master as part of the bracket. I bought a 6 inch piece of pipe to fit over the end of the master, knotched it out to slide half way over the master and welded it in place. Then I welded a reducer on the end of the pipe with the open end larger to fit over the end of the duel master. Then I welded a mounting plate with two bolt holes to atach the duel master. All that was left to do was lengthen the push rod. ( I forgot to mention that I took the guts out of the original master and drilled the end larger for the push rod to go through.) Now the duel master is mounted directly behind the original, with the push rod going straight through, and the whole thing is mounted in the original holes, with the brake pedal in the original location also. The duel master came from a nissan quest and the remote resivior is under the drivers seat. $14.00 for the used single master cylinder,$14.00 for the duel master, and $6.00 for the pipe. After running new brake lines and bleeding the whole system, I now have a new duel master cylinder brake system for less than $75.00 including lines and fluid.

    Yes pics please....Also, just a thought...Aren't the master cyl made from cast? and did you pre-heat it to weld on the pipe. Steel will brake away from cast if not done correctly. But aside from that I would still like to see how it turned out. Not trying to insalt or anything like that...just concerned if you had to pile on the brakes and will it hold when needed.

    After welding, I put epoxy around the seams to seal out dirt and moisture. I was also able to use the original rubber boot.
