My 3 month old replacement master cylinder is already bad. It's leaking down the inside of the firewall and not building up any pressure. It's a Cardone Select 13-37781. Looks like it was a 90 day warranty so it managed to last just barely that long...

What brand do you guys recommend?

Hmm. Don't like to read such news...

I used the same master cylinder when I went through my brakes this spring. The Cardone Select replaced an original master cylinder that I had rebuilt in the early 90's (and had probably been rebuilt at least once prior).

If you have your original master cylinder, perhaps you could just rebuild that one?

I have been less than impressed many times with A1 Cardone so called remanufactured parts. Bummer.

I believe the "Select" stuff is not supposed to be rebuilds.

Amazon has a Wagner premium for $53. That's $10 more than I paid for the Cardone. But hopefully it's better quality.

I go to autozone a lot
Not because they have the best quality...
But because this store has one of the best managers
Kevin ....
I've never met a guy that has so many numbers memorized in his head
I might not go in there for a couple months
When he rings me up... he knows my phone number
He knows hundreds of guys phone numbers
He knows hundreds of filter numbers .....
But the best part ...
If I go in there to buy something
And he knows he might not be able to help
He will just tell me what place will
Sends me right to a competitor store.....
And when I have trouble with a part
Zero questions & takes it back
I don't mind paying the extra for that service

I remember when I was younger parts stores being like that. But sadly the stores around me have a high turnover rate and most of the employees have very little knowledge or desire to acquire the knowledge. Plus they never have parts for vintage vehicles in stock. So for parts I typically just order them myself. I only visit the parts store for fluids and such.

There are a couple in town that still have good parts counter men
The NAPA. Has a gal that hands down is one of the best
One thing that makes me madder than anything
Is a guy that try's to BS me .....
If you don't know.. that doesn't bother me
Try to BS me..... that's a whole different thing

Quality parts counter guys are hard to find. Don't blame you. I avoid the OReilley's here in town as they seem to hire young guys who know nothing about older cars and equipment. Points and rotor bug will send them in to overload. Have better luck at NAPA counter and I get a great employer discount.
