11" Delco Moraine. I happened to have one.

Some Firewall and brake support hole mods are req. May not clear unless the BB valve cover is of the notched design.

I think the 9" Delco Moraine or Bendix could be correct for 65-66 Big car regardless of engine.

Experts will chime in on that one.

You'll be fine with the 9" and the single piston calipers. 

Use no larger than a 1" bore master.

Install a Roller bearing pilot bushing and the BEST quality throwout bearing. Don't use synthetic fluid in the Muncie, it will leak. They weren't built for that tight a tolerance for synthetic.
Check when installing the shifter arms, if they are like a Corvette, they were reversible, flipped 180* they would shorten the throw up by close to half...little known fact.

Do you have part #s for the brake shields? Are they from a 67?


Hope this helps

The shields are for a single puck calliper set up 69-70 only.

 Kevin, if you already have the engine, or I should say specifically the crankshaft you are going to use, remember this bit of info regarding the ID of the crank-

The pilot pushing issue was debated here a couple years ago, and the general consensus was to avoid a roller bearing bushing.  Also, many of the pilot bushings are steel, whereas back in the day they were bronze.    Do yourself a favor and check the pilot bushing from the clutch kit with a magnet.   If it's magnetic it's steel, and you should replace with a bronze one.   If not magnetic, you're good to go.

Can I ask what it cost? There's a market for those if it's even close to reasonable.
