Brake master cylinder.


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

       I have a Series 3A Hood that i have had on the road since 1999. I now need a new master cylinder. It came with the kit and is Ford made. I cant get one as i dont know what Ford it was origonally for. A number is stamped on the end of barrel. A0505A. Tried my local dealer to no avail. Can anyone help me get back on the road! 

   I live on the IOW so not much choice here. It is servo assisted by the way.

   Thanks to all. Graham.

Can always go another route & change to non servo by fitting a smaller bore master cylinder -- we have standard Sierra brakes all round operated by a Ford Ka master cylinder -- works great even my wife has no trouble stopping our toy.

I have just removed mine, see pic below. Is this what you need? I also have the diaphragm if you need one. The brake pipe that is still attached has a rusty union and ground off, but won't take much work to get that out.

Sorry for the slow reply. My cylinder is different with the res holes right next to each other. Thanks for the photo. I may go get a Ka cylinder as suggested.

           Thanks for your help.
