Almost exactly fourteen years ago I asked for advice on this forum to identify the 2-bolt master cylinder on my South African RHD Barracuda and had useful input from you guys, particularly Bearhawke (whose last comment back then--Jan 20 2004-- was, was I ever able to solve the problem?)

I thought I ought to respond now as a couple of days ago, here in England I took delivery of a Centric MC 13063011 (as fitted to a 69 Rambler, Javelin, etc), which matches up well with my original (but worn) master cylinder and will be a replacement for my present master cylinder if that wears out!

So good things happen on this forum, even if it takes a lifetime! Thanks guys.

Apparently; the RSA built Mopar A bodies used a locally sourced dual piston caliper disc setup, at least prior to ca 1972, which was nothing like our 1965-72 Kelsey Hayes 4 piston caliper design used on North American built A bodies, R or LHD. Which may also explain the AMC Rambler unit on your Barracuda.

Yes, they used Girling dual piston calipers, the same as used on Rolls Royce Silver Shadow of the era. The same calipers were probably used on other "large" cars common in the UK and South Africa at the time, like Ford Granada, Vauxhall Ventora and Rover 2000 though I can't be certain because I've not seen any of these last ones with my own eyes and I'm only going on a vintage British Girling parts number book (which doesn't list Rolls Royce!!!).
