Re: who reproduces a good 309 master cylinder

Robert, I purchased one of the repop 309 master cylinders about two years ago from The Right Stuff. The master cylinder is an excellent reproduction and has worked flawlessly since installed.I don't know who makes them for The Right Stuff (China?),but it is a nice piece.I paid $99 for it two years ago.

Re: who reproduces a good 309 master cylinder

thanks guys. im going to give the right stuff a call, ive already got the brake and fuel lines from them and they seem very nice quality. i cant order from camarospecialties, due to some past bad experiences dealing with them but they do have one on ebay for $119 shipped and it did have the us stamping which did intrigue me.

Bob gets the reproduction parts stamped with 'US', looks pretty close to the original font (but you can pick 'em).

Re: who reproduces a good 309 master cylinder

I don't know if it helps but I just pulled out a 68 MC for manual drum brakes that was in my 68 standard coupe 250. It's original and works fine. I just did a power disc brake upgrade.

I don't know if it'll work for your car though. I'm new to classic cars so I don't know what your 309 has.

$25 and it's yours. Shipping included (assuming it doesn't cost more than $25 to ship!).

I'm in Frederick, MD. Send me a PM if you want it. I can ship it out tomorrow after I box it. If not I'll probably just hold onto it until someone else needs it.

Just curious, what are the original US stamped 309 Masters going for these days?

thanks james, its coming along. when i went to look at it in this guys garage, it had a layer of dust on it and it looked like it had black interior. got home, cleaned it and it was green. pretty cool and different. i didnt even know it was a z, all i knew was it was a 69 with the rs front end.

Re: who reproduces a good 309 master cylinder

now back to why, its not that i cant order from them, i wont. its about principle. im not trying to bash. my first experience with them i was satisfied, but the last 2 was the last. when you take your hard earned dollar and tell someone exactly what you want and then they send you something you told them you didnt want. thats it for me. enough said. in the next month ill be ordering a right stuff master cylinder, summit racing has them for $89. + shipping.
