Where can I buy a Brake master cylinder rebuild kit ?

I painted the master cylinder a nice steel color and want to reuse it. I thought it was "safe"option to rebuild it... I am also rebuilding my calipers, is that "silly" also ?

Thank you for your response !

when STOPPING a car is involved

'rebuilding' is silly when New parts are

available.

what will be your plan when you

need to stop in traffic and your

rebuild fails ??

The gist of CD's post is that NEW ones are available built by the original manufacture to original specs. Now we all know that rebuilds can be safe but new is better.

I see these guys have them for 209. and change. Blunt might be able to do better.

How much was the rebuild kit?

I'd go new.

I have rebuilt many MC's and they all worked fine EXCEPT for the one on my '02. The snap ring groove has no taper and it is VERY easy to damage the edge of the piston seals. The pedal would fade to the floor and build pressure with repeated pumps. Took the master apart again and everything looked fine, just didn't work. Replaced with a Blunt. For this car, I would recommend new.

YMMV
