Depends largely on the theme you want to stick with. If original is what you are after I would keep an original style master cylinder or possibly rebuild your original with a honing tool and new plungers.

However, you could purchase a newer style, double reservoir master cylinder and retrofit it to your vehicle. This would of course give you a greater piece of mind on those quick stops!

Dman(17) thanks for info. I would like to keep close to original, but want safety also. I'll check out which newer cyl may fit.

Check out Pete&Jakes, they have complete units you can buy and they should bolt right in.
