want improve single jar master cylinder brakes on a 64 chrysler 300, need ideas.
this car has new everything but still seems slow to stop. larger brake lines? brakes can't get any larger 3x12 if i recall. car has a 383 and seemed to be fuel starved changed the fuel lines to 3/8 and large volume pump, now no top end fuel starvation. 55 to 100 mph - no time now. would larger lines help? dual master cylinder? change whole braking system? front disc?

Brakes: When braking hard, all wheels should lock and bring you to a smokin' good stop.If not, you need bigger leg for more pressure. Seriously though, has the brake system been thoroughly inspected? Frozen cylinders? Bad hoses? Need to determine problem(s) before jumping to modifications. Dual circuit upgrade is a good idea.

Fuel starvation: Need to determine state of iginiton system components, carburetor condition, fule pump & lines, etc before jumping to modifications. That motor should pull like a locomotive.
