I've seen this used on a couple of builds and they look nice when set up with the booster turned 90*

However does this one pose a problem? It shows the same mounting flange and has a 1." bore with a one piece reservoir and if I see it correctly it also has dual circuit and more than half the price of the other.

Again, your Input is greatly appreciated and respected!!!

Actually, they are both single circuit.

What you want is either of these styles:

I replaced the MC on my '52 LandRover with the Wilwood MC in your first link. Better brakes than it's ever had before!

Oh Yes you are right they are!
I posted the correct one that I had been looking at before from a build on here that is the same as the second link in your reply, the first one I dont think will mate to a MGB booster with 2.250 stud c/l.
Thanks!

Thought about that too,seeing that my booster was open to elements for a bit.
