          I need to return is to the store because it did not fit. The rear pipe fitting was too small.

          Friday Unit

          Comments about Cardone Select New Master Cylinder:

          I purchased this new master cylinder in the store and installed it. It fit and went in very easy (after getting the 13 year old brake lines free). After installing I could not get the RF and LR brakes to bleed at all (LF and RR worked fine). I assumed that I got a large air bubble during the install in that line. After taking to a garage for a power vacuum bleed of the brake fluid, they found that the new master cylinder had a bad line. One worked one didn't. I could had saved a lot of money if I thought to check if the new master cyl worked. It worked enough to bench bleed the lines, just not after the car started. Just double check the whole unit if you are not getting pressure after installation.

            Comments about Cardone Select New Master Cylinder:

            I can't say it was easy to install but that's due to cramped space, which is an issue with many auto repairs. Also, this was my first experience replacing a master cylinder. So, I found some Internet references on bench-bleeding the cylinder before attempting this.

            Installing this master cylinder and bleeding the brake lines has resolved a problem I was having with a fading brake pedal. Also, I like the fact that this unit came with the fluid reservoir on it.

              Great replacement part for OEM design.
              Reliable (worked great the first time).
              Reservoir cap a little more sensitive than factory part - make sure fluid is filled up to the "max" line (otherwise, brake light will come on).
              Comes with bench-bleeder kit.

              The mounting is slightly rotated from original but it does perform OK.

                This was fairly easy to install for someone with limited car knowledge. It has been working great since the install.
