 Posting Pictures of Butch Smith's '46 Hudson when he Installed Disc Brakes and a custom Master Cyl onto a stock Hudson Brake Pedal Assembly.

Appears that Butch's machined Adapter is 3/4" thick with a 'Custom Master Cyl' bolted to it and since thia car has 4 wheel Disc Brakes, Butch installed an 'Adjustable Proporting Valve'.

Additionally, picture of his Engine Bay reveals the rare Bennett & Fellows Aluminum Head and the Supercharger mounted on a custome intake with special machined billet serpetine  Pulleys to spin the Blower.. This whole Project has been very Top shelf & First Class.......

Butch has done a lot of work on this Project himself but has had numerous lengthy delays from outside sources taking much longer than anticipated............

    Looks awesome. Do you know what master cylinder he used? Am just doing the same thing and in the process of fitting a kit from ABS. They do a tandem master with adaptor for $250 but I am looking for a remote fill one like in the pictures, Thanks

    Thank you Ol racer.  
    Made contact with ABS a few days ago about supplying a remote tandem master cylinder but hard to get a reply from them. Was thinking of using remote mounted PBR brake boosters from PBR in Australia.
