Re: DIY002C retrofitting a new dual master Cylinder. Updated

Hi did the 7inch dia booster fit ok under the hood
My treadle vac is only 5 1/4 inches dia and there’s not much room between it and the inner fender probably an inch or so

I’m not sure whether to rebuild the original unit or go for the upgrade

Thanks
Barry
