Remote Master Cylinder and Reservoirs
If you're building a competition vehicle or high-performance weekend warrior where space is limited, these high-tech, remote reservoirs and compact remote master cylinder combine remote out-of-the-way mounting with the quality craftsmanship, materials, and superior performance.
Manufactured by Jamar, a subsidiary of BDL, the remote reservoirs are machined from a solid block of aircraft-grade-billet aluminum for extra strength. Application specific gaskets are designed to manage extreme pressure and fluid transfer and lids are conveniently labeled “Front and Rear” on the dual RR-1200 distinguishing the front master from the rear and “Front, Rear, and Clutch” for the triple RR1300. Jamar's triple reservoir retails for $265.50 and the dual runs $174.50. Both are tapped 1⁄8 NPT and are bolt on replacements for comparable CNC models.
Jamar's MC5100 compact remote master cylinder is precision machined with a 1.2-inch stroke, and small bore for those tight spaces. Each cylinder features a hardened bore for racing applications and come with boot and shaft as shown. The remote master is available in five bore sizes including: 5⁄8-inch, 11⁄16-inch, ¾-inch, 7⁄8-inch, and 1-inch. The MC5100 remote master cylinders retail for $125.
Dropped Spindles For '54-'72 Galaxie
While the fullsized Fords are being seen more as hot rod material these days, there's always good reason to improve in the stance and stopping areas. A dropped spindle can be the best way to lower the stock suspension on a hot rod, maintaining full travel while tucking the tires into the fenders. With its in-house CNC-machining capability, Fatman Fabrications makes its dropped spindles to include an integral mount for the effective and easy-to-source '70-'81 Camaro caliper along with the '75-'80 Granada rotor. Applications include '54-'72 Galaxie, Mercury, and Lincoln, along with '63-'76 Falcon, Fairlane, Torino, Maverick, and Mustang.
