Going to a dual master is OK, but if you don't replace all the wheel cylinders as well. why bother with the master.
Because there's nothing wrong with them?

Re: 260 Tripower

Nice work and progress but that 260 doesn't really need that amount of fuel IMO... But it looks So cool !

Shelby perfected the 260/289 induction system with a F4B intake, a mild Cam and a the 465 CFM Holley. I duplicated this on my 260 & 289 setup. Runs great!

Re: Mercomatic 2-spd Trans kit info

If it is shifting ok just remove the pan and clean the filter with brake cleaner or gas. (not replaceable). For this you'll just need a pan gasket. Is it leaking anywhere else? If it is, I've used this guy several times for rebuild parts. Very good guy with all your parts. http://www.autotran.us/ He...

Re: Q: Door card removal ?

Upper and lower stainless retainers come off, if needed, after the door cards are removed. To remove the cards, remove the window cranks, door handle and arm rests.

Re: 64 driveshaft- six to v8 conversion

When I did my Mercomatic to C4 swap I had to change the forward yoke with this one, plus the u-joint noted. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Ford-C4-Transmission-Drive-Shaft-Slip-Yoke,9317.html?utm_medium=CSEGoogle&utm_source=CSE&utm_campaign=CSEGOOGLE&gclid=EAIaIQobChMItK6t0b6igQMVUER_AB2qMArpEAQYAyA...
