Master Cylinder
« on: May 04, 2006, 06:52:06 PM »
Looking for a new master cylinder for my 79 TA.  Anyone know where I could get a good one for a decent price.  I wasn't sure if autozone or pep boys would be crappy or not so I'm asking to see where I should get one from.  Brett: I know you have done this to your car, and i'm sure to a bunch of others, where could I get a decent one from? Also, what type and how much brake fluid do I need to replace the cylinder and bleed the brakes?

autozone sells a good master cylinder that wont brake the bank. and as far as brake fluid it would be best to use dot 3. when i say dot 3 i mean something that costs more than a dollar at the dollar store. i would get some good stuff instead of cheap colored water.
 got the pedal to the metal and the thing to the floor.

The cheap ones form AutoZone and such are not too bad most of the time.  I have had them last for a long time, but I have also had them go after two years.  But they are pretty cheap.  The place I get my brales from is the Right Stuff Detailing here in Ohio.  They are a little more expensive, but they have good stuff.
