My 72 does not seem to stop well. Front manual discs. Some have mentioned I may have the wrong master installed, but I'm not excited about changing it. I wondered if anyone can recommend some brake pads that really do stop better than normal replacements?

Then , my question is : Do you know about the "brake Pedal rod clevis "HOLE" ?
your brake pedal has - two holes at the TOP (under the dash) = one for 'manual brakes - - one
hole for power disc brakes. ………….. just asking .
Or - one hole for manual / one hole for power . . . brakes .
Could be the wrong M/C . . . . . but, I'm not up too speed . . . . which would work .

EBC has different grades of pad friction...'green stuff", "yellow stuff", "red stuff" are the names they use, you'll have check, but one of those is best for cold rotors, like a street car and are grabbier than the ones meant for heavy use like autocross the see a lot of heat.

Hawk Performance is another good company with many pad grades.

Manual brake rod location is the upper hole in the GM pedal....if you've switched from power brakes there might be a brake light switch contact bracket already bolted into the hole that you'd have to remove.
