Question on 89-93 Master cyl...

Hey guys,
One last thing, hopefully [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]on my brakes, which BTW are finally working after going thru the rear again. Anywhoo- the Haynes shows later 89-93 Bronco Master cylinders with plastic reservoirs having the proportioning valve screwed into the middle of the aluminum body, is that so?

Still trying to decide the best MC/Booster upgrade, and easiest [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], my P-valve is on the left-front frame.

Thanks again, Craig

the best upgrade i can think of right now off the top of my head is to use a Master/ Booster combo off a F250/F350 of the same year as your truck....adds more pressure and power to your brakes...makes it feel like a pedal and not like a sponge

Ford upgraded the later Bronco mc/booster combo to that of a F250 with a 1&1/16" bore size (same part #s)and the F350 has a 1&1/8" bore. Im a little nervous going That big. Reason im looking into the later combo cause the boosters are $20.00 less [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

Not sure what you mean by "middle of the al body" but, yes, my '90 has the prop valve threaded into the rear port, ie the port for the rear brake line. Very clean and simple IMO, of course I gutted it LOL!

Definitely go with the newer booster, even if you keep the cast iron MC. Changing MCs will require some plumbing, but still probably worth it.

Going to the one ton MC on my '90 1/2t did not require any plumbing. It req'd two line wrenches LOL!

Re: Question on 89-93 Master cyl...

I dont want to replumb it so maybe i will go with a later Booster and as JCAPPLIN suggested, an old cast iron bigger 250 M/C. I would have liked to get away from the cast iron master cylinder though.
Well anyways i now can let go of the steering wheel while braking without the truck going around the corner!
