Will this work with a drum/drum manual brake setup? I have a model A ford hot rod with '40s ford manual drum brakes. There is a later disc/drum style master on it now with the big/small reservoirs and it won't move enough fluid to engage the front brakes.

The 1 1/8” bore master should be more than enough for your 40’s drum brakes. If you are experiencing excessive pedal travel then could be some issues to address. First if the pedal isn’t hard then there is still air in the lines. If it was bench bled to verify no air in the piston cavities then air may still be in the lines. The pedal ratio needs to be 6.5 to 1 or higher with a 1 1/8" bore master. The large reservoir which is furthest from the mount flange is the reservoir going to the front brakes. Also the shoes must be adjusted to just touching the drum to have a high pedal.

I am building a 1934 Ford Coupe with Disc brakes front and rear. I have a 7 inch booster, what bore master cylinder do I need?

On your 34 Ford with disc brakes front and rear a 1 1/8” bore master cylinder would be the choice as long as you have sufficient vacuum of 18-20 inches available at the booster. We also suggest a pedal ration of 6 to 1 or better. If you do not have enough vacuum the best alternative is to use a 1” bore master cylinder as less pedal pressure is required to achieve the same psi at the calipers than the 1 1/8” master.

Master cylinder number 91031440 is 1 1/8” bore and can be used with a disc/drum application with a power booster. If you are running without a booster we suggest a 1” bore number 91031445 to help limit pedal pressure requirement. With disc front and drum rear you will need a proportioning valve and we suggest an adjustable under number 91031353 or a fixed number 91031364.

This will depend on application. The smaller the bore this stiffer the pedal, bigger the bore the more fluid it moves. If using up to 11" rotors with 2 or 4 piston calipers. a 1" is probably the preferred choice. If using larger rotors and/or 4 to 6 piston calipers go with 1-1/8. Disc/drum or drum/drum the 1" is more common.
