You're going to have to improvise. Up grade it. Yeah, it would be nice to keep it original, but finding parts is going to be next to impossible. Good luck on your endevors..

Adjust your rear brake shoes. Then rebleed the system. Start at the master cylinder Bleed master first then the wheel furthest away from the master (right rear then left rear then right front then left front. Do that and your pedal should be good.

One of the wheel cylinders is leaking, pulling air back into brake system and it's going back to the4 master cylinder. Look for brake fluid leaking at one of the wheel cylinders, that's where the problem is.

Brake pedal goes almost to the floor on a 2004 Toyota Sienna Van. Seemed like defectice master cylinder. Replaced master cylinder with same results after multible bleed attemps


Your getting air in your system from some where. check all lines for leaks and re-bleed the lines starting from the farthest bleed valve first, working you way closer to the master cylinder. Do not let the brake fluid reservoir run dry while you are doing this.

Just replaced Master Brake Cylinder on 05 Rio. Have plenty of brake pressure when engine is off but none when the engine is on


Still have air in the system. May need to have them bled at a shop that can use a bi-directional scanner to bleed the ABS electronically. First try bleeding them manually starting at the right rear and working your way closer to the master cylinder (RR, LR, RF, LF). Be sure to bleed each wheel until you get fresh clean fluid and be sure to keep the reservoir full during the process.12_24_2012_5_28_23_pm.png

My brake pedal slowly goes to the floor and the engine make a whining noise on my 2001 F-250 diesel. Why?


wellyou may have one of a couple of different problems.
1. if you have recently wrked on the brake system you have air in the system and need to bleed it.

2. if you are lossing fluid you have a leak in a line or caliper or rear brake cylnder

3. your Master cylender is going bad

your engine is making noise do to the power boost on the brakes being maxed out

Can break master cylinder (kit) do as good job as a new master cylinder?


This is a Yes, and No reply.

YES,
if the mechanic insures that the bore of the brake master cylinder, is free of rust pits, and if not, uses a brake hone to smooth out the bore. Closer inspection will reveal if the pits are too deep, and the master cylinder is unusable.

YES,
if the rubber components that go into the bore of the brake master cylinder, are installed in the correct direction, all the components are assembled in the correct order, and are pre-lubed with a little bit of clean brake fluid, before installing.

NO,
if any of the above criteria is not met.

The main thing is that the Brake Master Cylinder is in good repair. In good shape. If we are discussing the original brake master cylinder, for a 1981 Ford F100 pickup truck, we are discussing a master cylinder that is 28 years old, and has seen a lot of wear.

As a metallic object, such as a brake master cylinder heats up, (Engine heat, or even just the sun shining on the vehicle), then cools down, the moisture that is always present in the air, will form in the master cylinder.

Forms in droplets, at the bottom of the master cylinder's reservoir. This moisture creates rust, when it touches the cast iron brake master cylinder casting.
The rust clogs the ports at the bottom of the reservoir, and goes down into the bore of the master cylinder.

Makes rust pits in the bore, and harms other master cylinder components, then goes into the brake lines, and onto the rest of the brake system.

Me?
For the cost of a rebuilt or new brake master cylinder, compared to the expense of the master cylinder brake kit, and your labor time, I would go with a rebuilt, or new one.

Also this is part of the Brake System, and there's no fooling around with brakes! Your life and/or someone else, Depends on those brakes!
