Default Which Maverick master cylinder? Manual or Power?

Winter Project:

I'm in the middle of upgrading my '67 from manual drums to manual discs up front. I need to purchase the '74 Maverick master cylinder but there appears to be a difference because one is $17.99 for manual and $36.99 for power (AdvanceAuto)

But is there actually a difference? Is it the mounting/pedal rod?

Richard

The manual should have a smaller bore, making it easier to press.

I believe the Auto Parts store is leading you down the wrong path here.

There, I Believe, is but one Disc Brake master for the 74 Maverick, a Non Booster type.

If they are stating two disc brake (Booster type/No Booster) masters, their book is incorrect. I don't think there was Power Disc in 74 Mavericks. The other might be a Drum/Drum master

But anyway the difference in a Power Disc Master, and a Non Power. The depth of the in the rear is definitely different.

The Manual , with push rod, will have a machined ring in the push rod hole at the very bottom of the hole. This accepts the clip ring on the push rod to lock in the push rod from falling out. ALL Manual masters have this. Power Disc Masters are smooth.

It is easy to seperate Power Disc Masters from Manual simply by looking for the machined area in the hole.

As far as Bore size, yes, Ford had MANY variations. If you choose a master anywhere from 7/8 to 15/16" all will function fine, just stay away from the 1", and over.

If you get a 74 Maverick, Manual Master it will come with the push rod----Don't clip it in for a 67 68 69 70 Mustang, it will be to long, making your pedal to high, use your old push rod to maintain the pedal heigth you are accustomed to.

On the 65 66 Mustang, go ahead and use the new Maverick push rod, your pedal will be Perfect heigth.

Sorry, newbie question.

Why would someone use a 74 Maverick master over a 67 Mustang Disc Master? Why not use original equipment? Thanks.

The Maverick MC has a bore diameter of 15/16" versus the stock 1" bore. When you decrease bore size, you decrease required foot pressure. You must push the pedal further to obtain the same pessure at the brake pad. However, the trade off it worth it.

I used a Raybestos Professional Grade Plus piece (MC36440) from RockAuto.
