Well, autozone list a new master cylinder for my opel (72 manta), for $35, well yes it was to good to be true. I went there and it looks like the one for my buick... Only 2 outputs and they are on the wrong side!

So I have 2 questions
1) Anywhere to get a new/reman master cylinder and how much?
2) Where can I get a rebuild kit for this one?
3) Is there another car that uses a similair enough master cylinder? making adapter plates and such are not a problem.

Thanks,
Nick

Rebuild Kit

BuickNick,

I had a bad master cylinder last year and chose the rebuild kit to save money. I have a friend who knows Opel GT's as well as anyone in this country to help me.

It was successful, but not easy! The following week we were in a local Kraegan Auto Parts store and for the fun of it, asked if they had a remanufactured master cylinder. They did and it was $5.00 more than the rebuild kit. We checked it and it was identical to the original.

So, it might be worth looking some more. It would have saved a lot of time and effort.

Good Luck! Richard

My motto is "Brakes? who needs 'em? They can only slow you down!"
lol
I've rebuilt master cylinders before, but it looks like my buddy that works at a parts store scored one for me, so I should be all set.
