General Tech- - BRAKES / 1956 Single to Dual MC Swap
« on: September 06, 2014, 01:51:09 PM »
THANKS GUYS - I did some research the 56 Savoy weighs about 3300 give or take a few pounds based on options - and the 67 Dart weighs about 3100 give or take a few lbs (both are avg numbers)- So i guess my conclusion is to buy a New 67 MC and the corresponding Prop Valve and treat the savoy as if it were a Dart - Concerning line   hook up / configuration

THANKS  KINDLY  GUYS

First THANKS kindly for a quick response - And as age goes lol I was in the USMC in 1979 lol ---Anyway My suggestion of the Newport was just a general statement - I guess I should have said if I locate a dual MC from any mid sixties Drum / Drum car of approx the same weight - could I just swap the entire setup and just hook up the two front and single rear lines in the same place on the donor prop valve and be fine -  The SAVOY will remain Drum /Drum - Not a show piece but will be a nice enough daily driver that I could still drop in on a cruise night or two
I guess in all my years of farting around with MOPAR's - I never ran into a single MC - However,  I do know this - I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO RELY ON ONE lol - Again thanks Guys

Hi fellow Mopar Fin Folks - I'm new to the Forum - Also new to pre 1960 vehicles - For the last 35 years I've worked with late 60's to mid 80's MOPARS - (giving away my age lol) - That having been said - I've read some of the previous post concerning this matter - But I still have a question - - - May I just take the Dual MC ( complete setup with Prop Valve ) from say a late 60's Monaco or Newport etc. and swap it directly into the '56 Savoy and replicate the brake line installation in the Savoy ( from lines to the prop valve )  to mimic the late '60s car - The weight should be about the same for both cars allowing the 60/40 proportioning aspect to be about the same - - -  PLEASE HELP - - - Any Info Would Be Greatly Appreciated -  THANKS  DON
