M35A2 Dual Circuit Brake System Upgrade

We have designed a long overdue dual circuit upgrade system. This includes a new dual circuit master cylinder with a remote firewall mounted fluid reservoir. No more checking and adding fluid through the hole in the floor. It features a separate booster for front and rear axles. It has long been a concern that failed components or damaged fluid lines anywhere in the system would likely bring full brake system failure. With this upgrade, if a component failed or a fluid line was broken in the front axle circuit, fully capable rear brakes will remain active or vise – versa, if rears failed, front brakes would still be active enabling the operator to remain safely in control of his vehicle.
