I am getting ready to fabricate a mount for my hydraulic clutch master cylinder to the firewall of my 62 Nova. From photos I have seen, the master is tipped downward so that the clutch pedal connecting rod is in alignment with the master cylinder. It looks like the master is angled downward about 30 degrees or so. Does anyone here know what the proper angle is? Anyone have a mount they could measure? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the offer John. I think it will be made from something a little heavier. I might try and mill something out of aluminum. I have to pull out my old brake pedal and test fit the new pedals first. Then take some measurements. We'll see how it goes.

PS have you tried out that brake on anything useful? I gave it a try with an 18" section of 16 gauge....seemed to work OK. Seemed like it needed to be bolted down to a bench to work better.

I have what I like to think is a successful clutch master setup but isnt what your looking for as mine is custom located to clear a 9 inch booster.

this is the Camaro '98-'02(?) style master... it will work with power brakes. i've seen a few members use this style but to be honest in all the time i've been collecting images/info... i've yet to see/hear of a road-tested, tried & true report on it... i'm sure it works fine but the specifics, the ins & outs of the installation... i haven't heard... looks like minimal bracketing is needed...

I bought from a Ebay seller that claims he's installed them on numerous 1st & 2nd gen's, but it won't work with my 9" booster.
