Question By: Dick on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
See above there is an install guide link. They go in basically the same spot as your frame mounted master cylinder.

Questions: I have a 1953 CJ3B and want to replace the brakes with your upgrade kit, what skill level does it take? I'm very mechanically minded being a lineman for 37 years is this a job some one can get through having never done brakes before( I'm retired so time isn't a factor).......Dan
Question By: Dan on Jul 11 2014 12:00 AM
Please see the install instructions. It is not too hard of a process.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Jul 14 2014 12:00 AM
The installation itself is pretty easy, but cutting out the original MC mounting bracket so it'll fit isn't. Make sure you have the tools to cut through fairly thick metal. Once that bracket is out, it's pretty smooth from there.

Questions: The frame mounted master cylinder is less than desirable on my 1944 Willys army Jeep. It is difficult to get to to add fluid and seems to fail often. Is there such a thing as a conversion kit for a dash mounted master cylinder combined with an uplift brake pedal?
Question By: Dick Mesa on Mar 16 2013 12:00 AM
You should have an access cover on your floor board to add fluid to. It would be pretty hard to get a under dash to work for the Jeep.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Mar 18 2013 12:00 AM

Questions: can I use the front and rear brake line kits that kaiser willys sells and just build the frame brake lines? If so, what do you recommend for the frame lines. I would like to buy lines that are already flared since I don't have a flaring tool.
Question By: daryl on Dec 1 2012 12:00 AM
Yes that is correct. This will not affect the front or rear lines and our kits will work. Your local NAPA sells predetermined length preflared lines. You can easily make them off of that.

You just have to rebend your lines to this one and put an inline switch in.
