Probably should have asked in the Performance section.

Yes, used in my car for 20 years. Works fine but the caps always leak a little fluid. Common problem with this style m/c.

save yourself time and fabbing of parts needed.

Aluminum Master Cylinder

They had/have this same part with stainless steel bore sleeve. I have one of those but they're claiming to be out of stock now.

Not sure how a Corvette M/C can be disc/drum, because there has never been a disc/drum Vette. '53-'64 was drum/drum, '65-up disc/disc.

I use the Strange Engineering version on my Chevelle, and Wife's Mustang, an 86 Plymouth Horizon M/C on my Monte Carlo and an unknown Mopar on the Nova (which is a chassis car with the m/c mounted under the floor).


I like the Mopar master cylinders. They are lite, many bore sizes to help get the pedal feel you like, and they are cheap.

Only problem is they are not a direct bolt in. On my Chevelle i had to remove the studs in the pedal assembly and weld in new studs slightly wider. Not hard to do if you can weld and fabricate.
