No you do not need to change the master cylinder if the conversion kit is made for this car.
Just will definately need to bleed the master cyclinder if the fluid level becomes empty. Otherwise the pressure is the same.

I have a 1995 dodge ram 2500 cummins the abs and brake lights are on and the cruise control is not working? I have replaced the master cylinder and the speed sensor in the rear axle


The warning lights mean there should be a trouble code stored in the body computer. I would start there.
When the ABS system is inop it may prevent the cruise from working too. Sometimes a hydraulic brake system failure will turn the ABS light on too. After repairs you would need to scan the system to turn the light off with most vehicles.
Are the brake lights in the rear of the truck staying on ?

Looking to download a workshop manual for a opel astra models 1.6 93' and whatever other 1.6 astra has disc brakes all round as I would like to do a cross comparison to see what I would need to get to...


You can go to www.alldatadiy.com to find the information however when you do a change over yo will have to change the emergency brakes as well as the master cylinder and you may need to change the lines comming from the splitter. You can go to a junk yard and look at both to see if you want to do this but it won't be cheep. The master cylinder will cost about $100.00 and the spindles with rotors and pads will cost about $300.00 plus all the conversions needed to make it work. if you need more detailed information to make it work let me know.

1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up


is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..
