Wilwood master cylinder
#1
Curious if anyone is using Wilwood's master cylinders for power brakes. I am looking at the p/n 260-8555 with 1" bore for power brakes, disc/disc setup. I have a Wilwood 2-piston front caliper and an ElDorado 1-piston rear setup. It says that these have a 2:1 front bias so I am curious how do they perform. I have a rear line proportioning valve that I will use to fine tune.

I currently have a Scott Drake 1" bore master that is leaking after two years  Angry that I want to replace.

I’m looking at something similar to use with the mustangsteve adapters for cobra brake conversion. Supposedly wilwood has a m/c that’ll work with disc/disc and no power assist. To clean up the engine bay some. You may call them and see what they recommend with your setup.

They recommend the 7/8" and 15/16" bores for manual. The 1" for power brakes.

I was looking at the same Master as well. Hopefully we get some feedback.

Nope.
I am running the economy version. 1” bore aluminum V6 mustang one from Mustang Steve with metric bubble ports on the wrong side.

That does look like a nice master cylinder, but in all honesty I kind of like the safety of a quick visual check on fluid level that a translucent reservoir provides.

Do you have power/manual brakes? Discs and/or drums?

Here is what I am running on my 73 with 4 wheel disc brakes. I run a wildwood on my 66 Fairlane and really like it but its manual 4 wheel disc.

I am running a Wilwood MC but I'm also running 4 wheel manual disc brakes with NO proportioning valve. BTW they work great with no issues for several years now. The help line for Wilwood was very helpful.
