    Remote brake / clutch reserviors

    Now that CNC is out of business, what are you guys using these days?

    I have a double and am going to a hydraulic clutch, so I need a triple. I can't find anyone that has one in stock.

    Here are a couple that I have seen.
    OTB - They look nice, but a little hot rod-ish to me. And pricey. OTB.jpg

    Jamar - looks a bit like CNC. I don't really like the modern style logo that much. JAM-JRR-1300.jpg

    Any other ideas? Or opinions on these?

    I might look for a place to add a different single reservoir. (And I can't change my misspelling in the title - OOPS!)

    There's Kugel Komponents 5553 triple reservoir. I have one I will sell, bought it hoping to use it but didn't in the end. They are $180 US plus shipping, make me an offer if interested.

    I've used the Tilton 3-chamber and will use it in this build as well. It's plastic, rather utilitarian, certainly not flashy.

    Not too pricey for a triple, just not much capacity. https://www.scottshotrods.com/remote-reservoirs/

    Ditto On The Tilton 3-Chamber
    Three separate reservoir levels, one 9.8 oz., one 6.3 oz. and one 4.0 oz. capacities.
    Front brakes on the largest, rear on the next and clutch on the smallest.

    You guys really want to spend my money. I do like the look, but $330 for 3 PVC glue cans?

    I ended up going with the Girling style reservoirs. I really like the classic look. Moss Motors has them, made by Classic Gold, which makes quality products. If you need better wiper arms, I recommend Classic Gold.

    I got three of them and three brackets for around $230.00. They are on sale right now. These have the decal on them. They also have a diaphragm in the cap to keep air out and fluid in. Apparently the fitting is AN compatible.

    Thanks for the help.

    I know that this is old, but I wanted to do an update. I HATED the Girling reservoirs. The decals (not stickers) are so fragile, that you cannot even handle the reservoir without damaging them. Then one of the caps galled while test fitting. It was not cross threaded. Hey, they are just like the originals.
    I got the mocked up, on a nice bracket, removed them, replaced a damaged decal, and returned them.

    I ended up finding a triple CNC.

    I have the low profile 3 chamber Tilton. Any chance you have a pic? Would love to see the mounting position.

    Oystein,
    My original install was on Superformance cars. Mounted center as high as possible on the firewall.
    Not sure how I'll mount it on the Challenge car but I'm planning on the same central location. I am concerned with gravity flow into the master cylinders.
    PM if you wish.
    Jim

    I made my own to look like the ones sold by Nick Acton for less than $100



    I later moved them to the front of the footbox as per originals

    Mike Forte came out with his own very similar to the CNC ones. Give Mike a call.
