I just added a set of the Texas T disc brakes to my 26 Touring. Everything went well until it came time to put the floor boards back in. the master cylinder sets a little to high for the floor boards to fit properly. Has anyone had this problem when installing disc brakes on a 26 model car. it appears that I will need to route out a space in the bottom of the floor boards or else cut a hole and cover it with a metal plate. I thought before I start removing wood, I'd ask if anyone else had this problem, and if so how they dealt with it. Ed
Yes, you have to dish it out. At least that is what I did. Also make sure the hose connection on the master cylinder is pointed to the hand brake.
I put a little grease on top of the master cylinder, lay the board on top to see what has to be remove.
Keep checking until the board lays flat, you don't want to break through to the other side.
Peter. Thank you for your quick response. Did you mount the reservoir on the firewall or beneath the seat?
I did not have a problem on my 26 but did on my 24, I used a spade bit to remove wood and checked it with Prussian blue.
On my 26 Roadster I mounted the reservoir under the seat and on my 27 Tudor it's on the firewall. I like under the seat better. PK
