Matco brake parts and fluid reservoir

Recommended Posts

Another builder asked - on the mail list - for the specific Matco master cylinder model, and the reply was MC-4, but as luck woould have it, the are TWO MC-4 parts - MC-4 and MC-4 .625

 

Does it matter?

 

Also - I've seen photos on builder's sites where they use the Matco lay-down cylinders and have what looks like a glass fluid reservoir - what part number is that? I can't find anything like that in the AS&S site.

 

Thanks!

is this the one? some people have had the clear plastic one crack. I have been using them for 5 years with no problem

Some of the master cylinder have different bore and stroke. Give Matco a call they will know which one goes on the cozy. I have the Matco triple brake with 1.5" pistons and I use the MC 4 with the longest stroke

Those are the one's I have. Since they're plastic and have a 1/8" NPT thread in the bottom, you have to be VERY careful not to tighten the fitting too much. You can split them easily if you do. 7 years on mine - no leaks or problems. It's VERY nice to be able to see the brake fluid level at a glance.

Same here. The clear one are quite robust. I hung mine high (as recommended) and makes it EZ to monitor on a routine inspection. Matco says you can get by with only one but I like the idea of redundancy with two.
