Master Cylinder


Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove necessary under hood components in order to gain access to the clutch master cylinder.
  5. Place a suitable drain pan under the vehicle to catch the fluid once the line is disconnected, or place a rag or shop towel under the fluid line of the master cylinder.
  7. Loosen the line at the cylinder and allow the fluid to drain.
    Clean, high quality brake fluid is essential to the safe and proper operation of the brake system. You should always buy the highest quality brake fluid that is available. If the brake fluid becomes contaminated, drain and flush the system, then refill the master cylinder with new fluid. Never reuse any brake fluid. Any brake fluid that is removed from the system should be discarded. Also, do not allow any brake fluid to come in contact with a painted surface; it will damage the paint.

  9. Remove the clevis pin retainer at the clutch pedal and remove the washer and clevis pin.
  11. Remove the 2 nuts and pull the cylinder from the firewall. A seal should be between the mounting flange and firewall. This seal should be replaced.
  13. The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  15. Lubricate all pivot points with grease.
  17. Bleed the system at the slave cylinder using DOT 3 brake fluid and check the adjustment of the clutch pedal.
