Has anyone come up with a master cylinder that will separate the front breaks from the back breaks. I have an 1963 car.


Thanks for any info.Bubba Hauss</font></font></blockquote>

In response to the Bubba's posting below, I hazily recalled there having
been some brief discussion on this List just before Celina last year of a
dual reservoir "split" braking system, and indeed, Chas Gould's comments
about this can be found in the List's Message Archive at
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/amphicar-lovers/message/10798

For ready reference, here's the text of Chas Gould's posting of Tue Jul 13,
2004:

=============
Perhaps one of our members more fluent in German could try to explore the
Ate site a bit better, or possibly even call Ate to see if they have a
reference in their files to what parts DKW originally bought from them back
in 1960.

When we were in Germany last month, we found that almost all of the German
owners have changed their Amphis to a dual reservoir system. They all feel
much safer with this arrangement and it may even be required to pass the
tough TUV test standards, although I am not sure. My point is that they will
likely have a suggestion as to which dual reservoir system is most easily
adaptable, or they may have many spare master cylinders which have been
taken off of their own cars.

=============

I will be sending a copy of this to some folks in the German Club, the
Amphicar Club Berlin e.V., requesting their comments. Perhaps they might be
able to offer a few specifics about what seems a very sensible safety
modification, since such "split" or "dual" braking systems are safer than
the Amphicar's stock single system. For example, in the event of, say, a
wheel cylinder failure or brake hose rupture, instead of the entire system
failing, in a two-part braking system, only half of the system would fail,
so the remaining working half might just stop you before you flew through
the ordering window at the Dairy Queen.
