Title: Brake master cylinde
Post by: Matra_Hans on January 10, 2011, 10:45:33 am
For all Rancho drivers out there! (Hi Lars)
The brake pedal in my Rancho was moving slowly thoughts the floor when pressed for longer time. The brake pedaldid not move much but problems does newer disappear they will only get bigger so I started looking for a replacement for the brake master cylinder.  Two used master cylinders that I had in store was also “leaking” The master cylinder is a 19 mm ATE-cylinder and I realized that new cylinders or repair set are no longer available.
I started searching the net, and found a German supplier called Der Franzose specializer in spare parts for older French cars and they had universal 19mm gaskets for master cylinders. I order 10 (5 pieces are needed but I like to have an extra set in my store) and the universal gaskets fitted nicely. Actually the rubber rings looked exactly like the original ATE items. The result: The master cylinder is again in good working conditions.
