Questions: Is this the only master cylinder that will work with front disc’s? I purchased a 1968 CJ 5 V6 from my friend who converted to front discs. The vehicle has the original style master cylinder #945556. A proportioning valve and check valve for rear brakes is in line.
Question By: Sam E. on Apr 10 2022 12:58 AM
I would personally use this kit. But a dual res mastery cylinder with a prop valve would work if proportioned correct.

Questions: Can this master cylinder be used with my old drum brakes, until I convert them over to disc up front? That way I can convert them in stages.

Yes, the prop valve would not really be necessary and you could just plumb it in later.

Questions: Can you guys clarify if I need to cut off my Stock frame master cylinder mounting bracket? It says in the product description above on this page that no cutting is required but the first step in the directions says to cut it off. I have a 1966 CJ5 V6. Doing a dry fit up it looks like it needs to come off to give this new master cylinder enough room to sit square in front of the new bracket. Thanks.

Questions: I ordered and installed Brake Conversion kit/SKU 376895. Works well. You descrive SKU 376896 as the Master Cylinder for this Kit. However, I have a Jeepster Commando/1967/V6/4WD and that isn't shown on your site as compatible. Will the SKU 376896 match up to 376895?? Thx
