hey list
first id like to thank everyone for their help on getting my pictures for my 
report. ive gotten an A.

now for my question. i have the old, original master cylinder and hydravac 
power booster in my '57. id like to move the master cylinder to the 
firewall. i have access to a ton of 70s-80s camaro/firebird units, will 
these fit? what kind of modifications am i looking at? is it just a matter 
of drilling a few holes in my truck firewall and hooking up brake lines? im 
running 4 wheel drums, will i need a proportioning valve or anything?
my original brakes have an internal leak, and i lost my brake lights cuz of 
lack of pressure, enough to stop the truck safely, but not enough for the 
lights apparently. so i figure now is a good time to upgrade to the safer, 
duel circut, easy to get to firewall location, master cylinder.
Thanks, a LOT for any help, i need it asap tho. as im going "yardin" this 
'57 chevy 3200

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
