    68 Dart, 318 car, front disc/manual brakes. Does not have correct MC currently, but correct MC is $300+... Can he simply use a later 1" bore manual MC for disc? Such as MC36412 from Raybestos?

    Technically yes.

    BUT...

    1. Are the port threads and sizes the same
    2. Is the hole for the push rod the same depth
    3. There CAN be different porting on the inside that might give different braking characteristics, good or bad.
    I would call Raybestos and ask them for a comprobable.

    Unless the MC is a rust bucket inside a rebuild might be in order.

    Looks like disk drum cores are in short supply.

    If he can use a nice used OEM one from a '70 manual disc 340 Swinger then PM me.

      $300 is ridiculous. These MCs are widely available, and there is nothing special about a 1968. Just keep shopping.
