1966 C2 Corvette Wilwood Master Cylinder Message Icon


Can anyone tell me if a WILWOOD DUAL MASTER CYLINDER should be a direct replacement for the original standard master cylinder on a C2 Corvette with power brakes? Or has anyone adapted one of these? At the moment the hood will not close by about 1 & 1/2 inches - HELP!!

Hi Mate I have the post below yours, yep no replies in over 24 hours like yours. I posted the same question on corvetteforum.com and got replies almost instantly even though it was 6.30am over there. Give it a go, come on guys do we not have any experts in the uk!!

The common replacement brake master for a 66 with power brakes is a 67-82 master cylinder. You can have one delivered for under 100. If you have an original 66 master cylinder for rebuild Id be happy to buy it.

AndyP,

I'm guessing the clubs C2 experts are a bit old in the tooth when it comes to taking the time to give advice only to be shown no acknowledgment from the OP. If you look at the timeline above this is a classic example. Car clubs are not all for taking, members are expected to give as well.

Re: 1966 C2 Corvette Wilwood Master Cylinder


My field of expertise is the 68-82, but I'm not aware of ever seeing Wilwood, or any of their suppliers, offering a direct bolt-in replacement Master Cylinder for early Corvettes, C2 or C3. I have seen them fitted to both, but in "restomod" situations.

Callipers are a different matter, and Wilwood units are direct bolt replacements

Re: 1966 C2 Corvette Wilwood Master Cylinder


Apologies for the slow response - I have been unwell and my son has taken over dealing with the car and wasn't aware of my recent joing of the club.
I have now been sold two supposedly direct replacement bolt-on master cylinders - neither of which fit. Having spent a fortune on shipping and import duty - I ow find myself in the position of having to try to return them and being fleeced on duty on the return shipment ...
