Only a couple of cautions.
1.  Be sure the flex hoses do not rub on the back side of the front wheels 
or tires when the steering is cranked full one way or the other.
2.  Bench bleed the dual master before install.

BTW, you might be interested in the FC email list - Corvanatics.  Go to 
and click on CORSA online, then on Chapters.  Corvanatics is the first one 
on the list.  You can find info on the email group at their web site.

Hi I have a 63 rampside that sat inside for a few years. The truck is back 
on the road now but upon inspection the brake flex hoses are cracked and the 
wheel cylinders are starting to weep from the boots. I was thinking of 
installing Clarks duel master kit, new wheel cylinders and stainless brake 
flex hoses filled with silicone brake fluid. Any thoughts, suggestions? 
Thanx Bill 63 Rampside 65 Corsa
