Re: mastercylinder rebuild kits ??

I have never had good fortune when trying to rebuild a master cylinder. All the ones that I have tried to rebuild were pitted in the bore. After honing the pit marks out, the O rings were too small for the bore. I have even tried putting larger O rings on the plunger. I finally decided that saving a few dollars wasn't worth it and now buy rebuilt. I know people that won't put any master cylinder on their vehicles but OEM. I have found that if the rebuilt works correctly when I install it, it usually lasts for a long time.

Re: mastercylinder rebuild kits ??

I agree completely. As inexpensive as rebuilt units are, and with the liability involved it just makes good sense. Its funny that more years ago than I want to count, we spent weeks in tech schoool learning to rebuild master and wheel cylinders, only to have the instructor, a retired Air Force trainer, tell us to, whenever possible, use a rebuilt shelf unit. As a GM service manager in the 80's thats exactly what I did. And for what its worth, I just had to put a master on an 83 CJ7. Cost me $21 at O'Reilly's, works like new, and carries a lifetime warranty. Can I tear in to one for that?
