Disk Brakes for a 544

I understand it is possible to put 122 disc brakes on the front of my 544. Is it also possible to convert the brakes to a dual circuit model, possibly with a later model master cylinder?

Jim says: I've converted my 544 to disk brakes; a pretty good explanation can be found at:

-- but it's not for the amateur! I've also installed dual circuit brakes, finally settling on a Mazda 626 M/C. A complete new mounting bracket is required, as is a bit of machining, some brake plumbing, and a proportioning valve. No volvo M/C is an obvious choice. I wouldn't recommend either modification to anyone without a machine shop and expert help.
