Looking for some advice , I am working on a 49 Chevy truck 3100 with a 77 Camaro front end, a 350,vette bellhousing and a S10 T5 5 speed trans. What slave and master cylinder should I use ? Looks like were going to use a pedal swing assy. from a 77 Camaro .

Thank You for any help you can Share , Chuck

I put a T5 in my 48 Chevy Pickup behind a 292 six and used a 72 Mustang master cylinder (disc front - drum rear) for the brakes and a Wilwood master cylinder, I believe a 3/4 inch bore, for the clutch.  I also used a McCleod hydraulic throwout bearing. I used a pedal assembly out of a late 80's Firebird and modified the assembly to give me more clearance from the firewall (needed more pedal travel) and also added a brace up to the bottom of the dash.  It all works fine.
