72 Disc Brake Master Cylinder
« on: February 08, 2021, 11:04:16 AM »
Does anyone have the part # for the disc brake master cylinder. I know there's a difference or am I wrong. I need to replace the original one. Thanks for the help.

i did some research awhile back and from what i found the oem master cyllender  has been discontinued and i was unable to find any NOS units still in existence..

my best advice would be to try to find a rebuild kit with the correctly sized cups..

i also believe that the newer master cyllenders could be used if the bores are the same and you can fit the brake line connections or get adapters.
