Performance Brake Master Cylinders

Your vehicle probably contains a number of features such as air bags, highly engineered seatbelts and crumple zones, designed to keep you safe. However, the best cure for an accident is prevention, and this is where your braking system is important. One of the most integral components is your brake master cylinder, so you want it to be working perfectly. CARiD has a wide range of parts to help you find what you're searching for, install it, and enjoy the benefits.

The braking system on your vehicle is obviously important because you use it every time you drive, but if your brake master cylinder fails, you'll be in trouble. Because the brake master cylinder supplies all other components with the brake fluid they need to operate, a failing one can cause the dreaded feeling of putting your foot on the brake pedal and finding that nothing happens.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Performance Brake Master Cylinders the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Wilwood, Centric, Dorman, Motorcraft, Auto 7, Advics the Performance Brake Master Cylinders we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.

Brake master cylinders have a failsafe built into them, which is that they power two separate braking 'circuits.' They have two outputs, one for each circuit, and springs inside the cylinder will cause brake fluid to be sent to each one as soon as you put your foot on the brake pedal. The brake master cylinder can almost always be found directly underneath the brake fluid reservoir underneath the hood, which means it has easy access to all the brake fluid it needs so long as you keep the right levels in it whenever you maintain the vehicle.

The brake master cylinder may be well-designed, but of course there are still things that can go wrong with it if you own the vehicle long enough. One of the biggest problems is with the springs, and if one of them fails, it will no longer be able to send any of the required brake fluid down its brake lines. While the twin circuits are designed to avoid this problem causing a disaster, it still puts you in a dangerous situation and should be fixed or replaced immediately. Of course, because it sits in the hot engine bay, you may also find cracks in the steel allowing brake fluid to escape.

When one or more of these problems occur, you will see a number of warning signs, and they should not be ignored. For instance, if one of the springs fails, the other circuit will continue to operate, but this means only two of the wheels on your vehicle will be slowed by the brakes. You can tell this is happening when you need to put your foot further on the brake pedal and when the vehicle is not stopping anywhere near as quickly as it did when everything was working. Leaks are also easy to spot, and if you see brake fluid on the ground where your vehicle has been parked, you should be taking action.

1962 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight | Posted by Richard | (Manitowoc, WI)

This master brake cylinder was an exact copy of the original one. Even the fill cap was exactly the same.
