Kevin, just about any master cylinder will fit under the floor, in the
approximate original location; just don't plan on doing much through the
original access hole. A dual chamber M/C has a rectangular cover held on by
a bale. You pretty much have to get underneath the truck to get the top off.
Once off, you can use the hole to add fluid through a funnel.
Some day I will get around to cutting a new access hole and a cover to fit.
Meantime, there's not much need to check/add fluid very often, so it's not a
