[VintageLambo] Re: Brake cylinder


Body of Message

I used white post for the Lockheed master cyl on my Cord. It was perfection, but costly. They"ve been doing brakes for centuries. BTW, I read a post on the big list about the clutch master being off a Range Rover or some such. Could the brake master be sourced similarly? I think I"d check. One more suggestion. I redid my entire brake system and when put back together I used ATE Super Blue ($31/qt) racing fluid. It"s DOT4 type, and has the lowest hydroscopic to boil point ratio of any non- silicone fluid. So far, very good pedal feel and no leaks, or fade. Good luck, hope this helps.
