Dual circuit brakes

by wallyg [old] » Wed Jul 03, 2013 6:47 am

Hi guys I've been giving a lot of thought of installing a dual brake system on my Ej wagon project but as you all know there's not much room to adapt a booster on the firewall but I've been lookig at a Datsun 180b twin resivoir master cylinder it looks to have a simular mounting to the holden my concern is there any way of connecting a VH44 remote to it or could you run this without a booster? love to know your thoughts
cheers Wally

There are many variables here, whether you are running disc/disc disc/drum drum/drum. Also whether your vehicle is auto manual.

I enjoyed this discussion

I am doing an auto ute at the moment and have decided on hr front end and stubs with lj torana dics and rotors and drum rear. I also have decided to go hq type master with a vh 40 bosster.

Thanks Adam for the pics and info my problem is my car is a manual the 180B master is not unlike the original old holden one even the flange to bolt it to the firewall is up the right way I need to get some overall dimentions so as the hinge spring wont fowl when closed.

i think you will find that the 2nd reservoir of the 180b will hit the spring for sure.

I was looking on the Summit racing site and thought this Wilwood master cylinder might do the trick

I had a bit more of a look, this might do the job to clear the spring

Hi Wally,

You can connect a remote booster to any brake master cylinder.
You should definately run a booster for the front brakes at least, whether it be remote or firwall mounted.
Best to mount under the guard if your after a cleaner engine bay.

Cheers,
Tim

Thanks guys for interest and info I walked the wreckers today and found 2 possibles both fffford (mazda) 1st one was econovan with a remote resivior and the other is a laser with the flange that looks the same as the Holden I'll be back there tomorrow with tools and I take your point about the remote booster for fronts .
Anyone had any dealings with the vh44 thats on ebay from china for $190 .
