    Default Hydraulic handbrake???

    hey guys,
    Looking at making my own Hydro handbrake. What master cylinder is the best to use? I know someone using a series 3-4 Landrover Discovery clutch master, but they seem to be a bit pricey and harder to get a hold of. Can anyone help me out?

    Cheers,

    Alex

    park brake will be the cable, the mc will run off the cable lever but i shall pull the pin out when i want to park it or street drive it so the mc doesnt operate and then only the cable will be functional

    Its a Road worthy requirement that the car must have a mechanical handbrake. It has been explained before, im sure someone will chime in.

    yea, it must have a mechanical handbrake as hydraulic systems can leak,fal etc

    this is why im retaining my standard setup with the add on master cylinder which ill be able to simply unhook so when handbrake is pulled it can just be cable and when hooked up it will use both

    anyone got any ideas for what mc to use??
