Finished the "scoop" for the supercharger oil cooler. Used the existing splash guard and a piece of an old fender to make the scoop.

I am still putting together the engine compartment and found a point of interference! The brake MC and booster combo pushes the front reservoir into my throttle body position. Can I put a remote reservoir nearby, and is there a kit somewhere that will adapt to a Datsun MC? I happened to have two sizes of reservoir (sitting on plenum core but they are both too tall)

Will the Tilton remote M/C part help Joel here? I installed these on my car, and they looked exactly like the Datsun ones. But I cannot measure both as I don’t have them.
Also Mazda trucks of early 70's vintage came stock with the same type of component on a Nabco M/C.

Just a thought.

Does anyone know or can measure the size (outside diameter) of the place on the Tilton Model 74 M/C where the reservoir clamps on?

I can't seem to convert this file into something I can measure on the computer.

Joel, I measured one of my Wilwood "Combination Remote Master Cylinder" masters, and it came up as 1.347" and 1.349"

...are the Tilton 74 series the same as the very-similar-in-appearance Wilwood product???

I will measure the stock unit to see if it is a standard measurement.

I measured the stock Nissan M/C and I got 1.365". What is the inside diameter of that remote gizmo you have. I seems we are about .02" or so off.

My bits measure 1.350" ID. A little action with a heat gun should see them on without issue. Here's my box of stuff leftover from the 3-wheeler:

Yes indeed, looks like you have two complete setups at least. Clutch and Brake?
Anyway, I would only need one group of gizmos. Would you be willing to part with some of that? Renumeration would be in order, let me know.
