VW Beetle Master Cylinder & Front to Rear Brake Line Replacement:

Video Overview:

Now that our 1963 Beetle has 4 wheel disc brakes it needs a master cylinder that can operate them. We swap out the stock single circuit master cylinder for a dual circuit large bore unit. We also install a direct mount brake fluid reservoir and show how to adapt the original reservoir to the new unit. Lastly we replace the rusted front to rear brake line so we won't have a puddle of brake fluid on the floor the first time we slam on the brakes!
