  1. So, I was having some brake issues (pedal going to the floor) on my 1963 Riviera, and ordered a variety of parts, including the master cylinder (shown here). Then, my mechanic said I needed a booster as well--but the problem was that I couldn't find a booster anywhere, only a booster/master cylinder combination. Unfortunately, by the time we figured this out, the shop had lost the original packaging for the first master cylinder I purchased, and I couldn't return it. Brand spanking new, never installed, $100 including free shipping to the continental US (other locations negotiable). Prefer Paypal, will take a personal check (or, if you're in the Detroit area, we can arrange a live meet and I'll drop $10 off the price). Message me if interested. Thanks!
  2. Does anyone know how to do this? I have the car in a rolling chassis and I've converted over to Wilwood Disc brakes all around. I need a master cylinder Thanks, Mark Vaughan
  3. Hey guys, I'm currently working on replacing the entire brake system on my 1954 Pontiac Chieftain. However, I've been running into some problems with the master cylinder. I ordered one online a few weeks ago and I installed it and bled the brakes. Whenever I pressed on the pedal nothing happened with the shoes and there was just a little geyser inside the reservoir of the master cylinder. I assumed the master cylinder was defective, thinking that fluid is just leaking past the piston. I bought another one and the same thing happened. Is there something wrong with the master cylinders or am I just doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

    39 Master Cylinder Removal

    Howdy folks! I've been searching around here and VCCA with no luck finding tips on this. I have the master cylinder out of the car, but I cannot figure out how to remove the shaft that the brake pedal pivots on. It's a manual, so the clutch pedal slipped off after pulling the lock ring with no troubles, but it looks like that shaft is held in by a small ~3/16" pin. Do I just need to PB blast it and hammer it out, or is it a screw of some kind? The top side is flush with the cylinder casting, but the bottom is recessed a bit and I can't tell if there's a slot or anything to unscrew it, even after cleaning. Thanks in advance!

    Master cylinder help

    I have a Bobcat tractor(no relation to todays bobcat) It was used to plow side walks in the north east. It uses many car parts. The rear ends and brakes are 39-40 ford i beleive, the rims and tires are jeep, and the master cylinders are off some unknown vehical. The unit is cria 1950, and has a kohler engine. Now the brakes on it need some work and new wheel cylenders. The master cylinders are in need of replacement or significant work. They are Wagner Lockheed # FE 1(5 or 3)(8 or 3)80. Im just wondering what they origionially were on, and where i can find parts or prefabaly replacements. Also where is the best(cheapest) place to bye 1939-40 ford wheel cylenders. The pictures are of one master cylinder, and the whole unit. Thanks in advance -Greg
  6. I own a 1936 Buick Series 40 (Special). I am rebuilding the master cylinder and noticed that the part number stamped on the casing is 5450221-3-N. It also says "Model 321A." I looked this part number in my pre-war Buick parts manual and it wasn't listed. I was wondering if someone who has a post-war Buick parts manual can see if this master cylinder part number is listed and for which year/model Buick? Thanks a lot.

    chrysler maserati tc brakes

    Hey out there, I am enjoying a 1990 tc EXCEPT the electric servo tevis master cylinder. Has any one replaced theirs with a simple vacuum master cylinder from something common like a plymouth breeze or mini van? I don't mind giving up the anti-lock, I am a sensible driver, use the car in a small town commuting, am a good mechanic. The replacement parts are just too high, I want some thing I can get at a local parts store. Just trying to be practical. I can make up the brake lines. After all my other rides are plain: '94 park ave 190k, 95 civic 4 door 240k, 90 nissan hardbody stick four no frills 120k Best to y'all
