Re: Need help with brass fittings

My advice, Buy new master cylinder and drive safer. Been in automotive repair since 1964....reman water pump, carbs, master cylinders, all aren't worth installing on any car, much less some sweet street machine that
you've worked and saved to bring back to better then new.
just my thoughts on the matter....Jay

If the master is original and you want to keep it, get it professionally rebuilt.
