    New reproduction power disc brake master cylinder for the Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang equipped with factory power disc brakes in front and drums in the back. This unit has a 1 1/8" bore and includes a new cap and diaphragm as shown. Unlike many others you will find, this unit does not need brass line adapters to fit your factory lines, they are correctly sized, will not interfere with your shock tower and ready to bolt on. Note that the 1967 - 1969 Midland booster (banded body) requires a spacer between booster and master and the 1969-1973 cars equipped with Bendix booster (crimped together body) does not require a spacer between master and booster. The only difference between this unit and our premium version is cosmetics. Has proper threaded line size for OEM or replacement brake lines. 3/8-24 and 1/2-20.

    You can find the premium version of this master cylinder here.

    Replaces Ford part # C8ZZ-2140-A.

    *NOTE* This is the service replacement for the 1967 Power Disc Brake (Ford part # C7ZZ-2140-F) and the 1972 Power Disc Brake before 2/28/72 (Ford part # D2ZZ-2140-A).

    WARNINGS:

    Do not attempt to use a 1970 booster on a 1967-69 Cougar as failure will occur within minutes!

    Never bleed your brakes on a power brake car with the car running. The pedal will over extend the rod into the booster and break internal parts. This is not covered under warranty.

    This master cylinder is advertised as being correct for power disc/drum cars, but it does not have a residual pressure valve in the port that feeds the rear brakes. Drum brakes need this residual valve, without it you'll have excessive pedal travel. I ended up ripping this MC off my car and switching to a Raybestos MC36251 which does have the proper residual valve installed.

    Cons:
    Bolted right into my '69 with no fitment issues. I did have to loosen the distribution block to start the lines threading into the master cylinder. Another review mention the cap is very tight and it is but it should not leak. Not 100% correct but 100% functional.

    I bought this unit with an increased bore due to adding a Baer brake setup for the front. I like the pedal travel and brakes seem to work better. Still have the brake light switch on. I was hoping it'd reset on it's own with the new master cylinder but, no luck. Overall I'm happy with the unit and went on relatively easy. No issues with shock towers, but I did have to cut the old one out. One tip is make sure the rod is inside the brake booster when taking of the master cylinder. Good products and I would by a rebuild kit next time. Not much to rebuilding the master cylinder, I wanted the extra bore size.
