Anyone put dual master brake cylinders in their TR-3??

I'm contemplating this as I'm doing the resto. I understand there are some TR-4 parts necessary. What's actually needed?? Which pedal assembly and masters are required. And yes, I do know that the pedal box has to be enlarged. What else is entailed??

Just out of curiousity -- what are the advantages of this?

George, you get dual circuit braking, so one leak won't totally disable the brakes. I wiped out my first TR3 on Fish Creek Hill, near Apache Lake, when the brakes failed, and I had to rub the right side against the mountain to slow down. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cryin.gif

I've seen a picture of it somewhere. ISTR that it used two master cylinders mounted backwards in front of the bulkhead bracket and a bridge bracket to afix the two MC rods to the top of the pedal. Fairly simple.

Isn't there a cheaper version than Revingtons?
It's over $800.!

Tilton makes an aluminum pedal assembly, that uses a single clutch, and dual brake cylinders. About $450.00, including cylinders. It has an adjustable brake bias feature, as well.
