Default 2 master cylinders

i have an old former funny car that has only a hand brake. that is on the right side of chassis. i would like to keep it there for the nostalgia look, but would like to have a foot brake also to keep both hands on wheel on the track. can you run 2 masters cylinders to the same rear brake system?any help thanks john

I do not think that is possible. With a T, the one cylinder would force fluid back in the the other cylinder. If you used check valves, the brakes would not release after you activated either cylinder.
I would go with a two caliper disc systems. Then you could use one or the other or both! Dave

If you just want the hand brake in there for looks, leave it in and don't plumb it in. Plumb in the foot brake only. JMO

Or tie the 2 into each other so that when you use one the other moves with it.
