Tell the parts store the make, model, year and what part you want to replace and he/she will look the part up on there system and give it to you. Once you replace the brake cylinder you will need to bleed the brakes and get the air out of the lines and cylinders. Hope this helps.

My husband accidentally used pwr steering fluid in brake resevoir. Brake pedal went to floor, one week later. Will drain and replace with proper fld. Could this have done any harm.

Yes, you will need to flush the entire brake system and change the master cylinder. The power steering fluid has eaten the seals inside of the master cylinder and if it is not removed from the system it will take out your wheel cylinders and caliper seals.

1990 GM3500 truck; just replaced the pwr steering pump, worked fine 3 days. Then after a cross twn drive, when I went to strt the truck, the brake pedal immediately sank down and locked the brakes...?

Power steering system isn't connected to your brakes, so unless you damaged a brake line replacing the steering pump, your repair had nothing to do with the brake problem.
Check brake fluid, see if the reservoir is empty. If empty, then you have a problem with master cylinder, slave cylinders, or the lines between them.

Grease in rear wheel hub

The rear brake cylinders are located inside the hub with the brake shoes on drum brakes...(common in 2004 Rangers on rear only) The brake cylinders are a "wear item" with seals...we used to rebuild the cylinder with new today to buy new brake cylinders to replace the leakey ones...You will need to bleed all 4 brake line/wheel connections after the replacement. Hope this helps.

Need to know where all the rubber seals are from the resovior to all brakes. power steering stop leak was put into resiovor and has damaged the rubber seal on the cap and blew the seal on the master...

Your system will have to be cleaned out. Master cylinder and all the caliper cylinders overhauled. Never put anything but brake fluid into the brake system. The seals are all insind the individual cylinders.

Both master cylinders leak fluid

This is unusual as I ride a 1994 model and have yet to have to rebuild the master cylinders. But, if they are leaking, it's time for a rebuild. You can buy the rebuild kits either through Harley or aftermarket. Simply disassemble the master cylinders, lightly hone the bores with a flex hone, and install the new kit. Make sure you use the correct type of brake fluid and do not mix different types of fluid. This may be what is wrong with your master cylinders now, mixed brake fluid. If it looks like someone blew their nose in your master cylinders, that's what happened. In this case, once you get the master cylinders rebuilt, you need the bleed the system throughly to clean out the calipers and hose as well.

Good Luck

My brake pedal is on the floor and the brake fluid continuously goes low. It seems like the vacuum pressure never builds to keep the pedal off of the floor. Any ideas?

You will need to carefully inspect the entire brake system for leaks. Inspect the front calipers, rear wheel cylinders, all the hoses, the back of the master cylinder, and steel lines. If something looks wet or drips brake fluid it is leaking. If you haven't seen any brake fluid dripping from under the car my first thought is that the rear wheel cylinders are leaking.

If the pedal went to the floor and you didn't have to add fluid than you would more than likely have a bad master cylinder but since you are adding fluid there is a leak somewhere.

not a hard job, but like all things you better know what your doing. Replacing the wheel cylinders is easy but then you need to bleed the brake system of air bubbles. There are plenty of sources for this so just do some research. I have found the brake system weak on my 2000 caravan, so I need to do some research on better components.

Brake failure/anti lock symbol and parking brake light stays on

The master cylinder has failed, the fluid bypasses from one cylinder to the other, this is really 2 cylinders in one, the brake system is split in an X pattern.
