I am wondering (I do that sometimes!) about which way is easiest and/or
best... put the front hubs (backing plate,etc) from a 55 1st series over on
the 50 3100, or move the backing plates and brakes from the torque tube onto
the 55 1st rear end. One way you get the older and less efficient hucks, and
the other way maybe those hubs and plates wont fit easily onto the 50 front
end. I would rather not mix the two when I transplant the rear end. Also, I
hear a lot about dual master cylinders. But why not just use the old one? I
guess my hesitancy comes from a lack of knowledge on exactly how to install
a dual (with proportioning valve) and what exact donor car to get the dual
off of.
