This is another question that came up during rebuilding my brakes.  I have
separated them into two notes, because in previous groups sometimes the
second question is skipped...  If that is not a problem with group, I

I will be replacing the brake lines on my 54.  The originals are really
tiny (should be fun finding a flare tool for those)!  I was considering
replacing them with larger diameter lines but I also read somewhere that if
you do that, it actually reduces the pressure in the system.  I am planning
on using the original drum brakes for the time being, but in the future may
move to disk.  I would also like to replace the master cylinder with a
dual/power unit, if that affects the decision...  What are your experiences
or opinions on this change?
