Does anyone have a suggestion for a “bolt on” replacement for the Kelsey Hayes set up on our 55 Fireflite 2 dr ht?

Our reservoir cap was snapped off and the reservoir full of trash. We’d like to go back with a modern, dual master cylinder set up.

Thank you!

Jack -

I recommend having your booster and master cylinder rebuilt by Harmon Classic Brakes. They have reproduced most of the seals necessary for a rebuild of both the master cylinder and booster. They also have reproduced the cap. If your master is nasty, they will sleeve it.

I bought their complete kit for my 55 Desoto and rebuilt both the master and booster. Work fine now.
