Thank you -- but Regina has the B51 power drum brakes, not the B41 power disc brakes. So it is a drum brake that I needed, and that is what I ordered.
I have been happy with the Raybestos brake pads and the disc brake MC that I bought three years ago. But my experience is a single data point, what has yours been?
OK, thanks. I am more familiar with the 1971 models and I believe disc brakes were standard on that year at least but I might be wrong. My experience with Raybestos was they listed a rotor available for one of the disc brake models and when it was received it was made by Centric, not a Raybestos 2 piece assembly as original. But I was actually happier with the one piece part anyway.
What threw me off is that I do not recall ever seeing a drum brake master cylinder on an original Chrysler product with a bail on it - only a bail on disc brake ones. The drum brake cars did have a top on it like you show but it was held down with a kind of V shaped bracket with a bolt, not a bail - but then I have only had a couple drum brake cars.
