And you'll be replacing it every 3 months, Unless I'm doing something wrong [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

I'm on my 3rd Autozone master cylinder since November. They replace it for free, but it costs my a couple hours of work and a quart of brake fluid every time [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
I'll probably end up ordering a NEW one and getting a refund from Autozone.

I don't know about that Ford master cylinder, but I'd say stay with the stock one. The bore is probably different and it may not work right.

Re: will a ford master cylinder fit my jeep

If I remeber correctly, I read an article a couple of years ago on this, ford break stuff will fit yj's ,but CJ's use GM break parts for an upgrade. I think the parts were from an old caddie. I'll see if I can find it..

cool that would be great, my friends don't like seeing me streched out to the floor and still coming down on them going down a hill, and I've done all the brakes except the master cylinder and the proprtioning valve. I think the seals are gone in the master cylinder.
