Would installing a manual master cylinder in a 1979 Datsun 280ZX be a good idea?
I need to put in a new braking system in a Datsun 280ZX that I am converting to electric. Since there is no vacuum from an engine, I was considering using some sort of vacuum pump but I came upon using a manual master cylinder instead, which is good because it does not require extra power besides my leg, but since my vehicle initially came with power brakes, I am not sure if it will be compatible. I will most likely have to replace all the brake lines, because they are fairly old and there is a good chance that they've been damaged. So this gives me the chance to replace them with suitable lines for either type of master cylinder. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
