All, I have managed to get my hands on a master cylinder rebuild kit. What do you think it's worth? Should I use it? How much pedal pressure do you need on your Opels?

It depends, is this new or nos? New is around 65, I have 2 nos that I won't sell, use or give away. 30 year old rubber and gaskets aren't reliable, especially in the brakes. I keep them around for the steel parts.

New, but the rubber is still soft and supple.

Just as an example I have talked to a couple of people that have nos torque tube dampeners. First look says they're great, close ispection shows them to be junk. I guess what I am wondering is why you needed to ask? Price for new can be traced to where you got it.

As for the brake pedal I like mine to be extremely tight, I drive with both feet. Meaning right is brake and gas, often at the same time. Left is clutch. That is one of the things I like about the GT. The close pedals. Right heel on the brake, toe on the gas.

New master cylinder is avialable from http://www.rockauto.com
$34.79 includes $1.00 core charge. When I redid my brake system this is what I used, great service, very happy with results. Just to see "Opel" listed in their pull down menu is worth the visit to their site.
