Koolkar, Check out this thread.. http://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthreads...rake_conversion_on_a_46_.html#Post708681

Also, If you are just a little north of Indy you should come by and take a ride in my 46 with the dual circuit front disc brakes. It stops well enough for me to put my employee's and even my 7 year old twins in it!

Also, make sure that what you get is a 1.25" bore. I used a 1" bore master cylinder and it just isn't quite enough and allows my pedal to go too close to the floor for complete comfort.
