Master cylinder question?

A little backgound. Before I did my toy axle swap. I had pretty bad on the Samurai. They worked, but it took a quick double pump to get them there. I just got used to it and thats how I'd stop. Now after my Toy axle swap, I got the brakes back to the same place...taking a quick double pump to get them firm. Let off the brakes completely and then put them back on and the medal is mush. While pumping the brakes I had my hood up and good hear noises from the master cyclinder (sort of a moan). So does this mean the master cyclinder is going out the door and I should replace it?

Re: Master cylinder question?

First off you need to fix the system so you don't have to pump the brakes. The moan is likly the vaccum boost behind the
MC. The tracker M/C will bolt on and works fine for Yota axles
1 push thats it.
For the Moan you can spray some silicon lube into the unit with the MC off. But the base problem might be the M/C is leaking into the Vac booster now I think of it.

I'd change it out. It's a simple fix and not too costly. Sounds like the diaphram isn't doing it's job.

So you're back on the road with it? Congrats!

Re: Master cylinder question?

Close to being back on the road! Should be on within the next week or two. Depends how quick I can find a tracker master cylinder for cheap. Yet another project I've never done [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Is it as simple as disconnect the hard lines off the side and undoing the two bolts that connect it to the vaccum booster then bolting on a new one? Filling with fluid and rebleeding? Just want to make sure I don't miss a step.

Koko... I might have one if you don't find one "cheap" enough.

Cheapest I've found is $50 shipped with the vaccum booster.
