Dennis has some pictures of his completed job about ten entries above this. That is exactly what was done to a few of our members cars during tech days when existing lines were used.

as Roger stated, the best route is all new lines, this coupler idea is a close second.

Darn...mine is "almost" done, but you know how that goes. Hopefully I can test it this weekend or next, but I don't want to publish any pics until then. Looks really nice though! (Thanks to Larry and Roger and Jeff and Kenny...)

Here are some pics of my dual master install... believe it or not does fit.
It's all bled and nothing leaks...but I still need to adjust the brakes, clutch, and tranny linkage before I can take it for a test drive.

Nice job bending and looping those lines! Looks like a clean install.

Mostly due to Larry and Roger for sure...but I did redo a bend or two to get it all to line up with the clips

This photo was sent to me by a friend that was at Hot August Nights in Reno. Is this some sort of quad master cylinder or am I missing something? Not sure exactly what I am looking at.

I am guessing it is in a 63 convertible by the toy on the air cleaner.

Could be a dual MC and a dual hydraulic clutch? But why would you need a dual clutch assembly?? Interesting.

Really looks like 4 dual masters, but it's not really clear. I guess he figured that with all the restrictions he had with shock towers he'd capitalize on the available space without those and just go crazy, uh, I mean, rationally exuberant. Or maybe he's an engineer at Boeing and he's built in multiple redundancy.

Brake Balance?

Another idea is that he might have a balance bar to adjust front-to-rear brake bias. A fairly typical race car setup uses two master cylinders, side by side, and a horizontal bar which activates both. One MC is for front brakes, the other for rear. The front-to-rear balance can then be adjusted by revising where the brake pedal presses on the bar.
