    Brake booster will not come out; hits strut tower! Hi all. I've found two other threads on this exact issue and no answers. I need to remove the brake master cylinder and booster from my '96 Cobra. No way will the bolts on this thing clear the firewall, because the front of the booster hits...

    I'm new. My son picked up a 2000 Roush 4.6. Hydro boost was leaking power steering fluid. No other leaks. Brakes were working fine. Everything was unicorns and rainbows until I replaced the hydro boost. The brake pedal is on the floor. Won't rise up. Power steering bled and works fine. I bought...

    Hi everyone, 66 Mustang coupe, 289/auto, factory disc brakes up front, rear drums. So I've had the car fully up on jack stands for 3 or 4 months doing some work to the rear and suspension, but haven't touched the braking system at all. Finally got finished everything I was working on, lowered...

    I know that you need the larger sn95 master cylinder in order to run rear disk. I eventually want to get rear end disk on my fox, but I don't have the funds for it right now. My current stock master cylinder is going bad and I need to replace it, so can I swap in the SN95 master cylinder now and...

    Hi, this is my first post so go easy on me. I just recently purchased a 1968 Mustang and I noticed the brakes do not work on it. I took apart the master cylinder and found that there was no fluid in one side of the cylinder. I took apart all of the drum brakes and all of them look to be in good...

    So, I'm very new to the whole "fixing my own car" thing, but I've decided to take up the new hobby after taking my car to the shop and being quoted nearly $1000 for some (semi extensive) brake work. Here's my story in a nutshell before I ask my question: My car has been making this awful...

    I was driving home to day and my brake pedal felt very soft and mushy, so to speak. When I got home I opened the hood and a little bit of smoke was coming from the master brake cylinder. Upon closer inspection, the rear compartment was almost dry and the front one's brake fluid was very dirty. I...

    I have a 1996 Mustang GT and i noticed there is a popping sound when i apply heavier braking, usually right before a complete stop, and the sound comes from the front driver side of the vehicle underneath, what could this be?

    Hey guys, So I bought a disc brake setup that a guy had bought from MustangsUnlimited. I'm not sure where he got the dual bowl master cylinder or brake booster, but they appear used. I got the booster/MC hooked up to my car but the lines kept pumping out air no matter how much we bled them...

    hey, i have a 1966 mustang with 4 wheel drum brakes, and they recently failed on me. luckily i was going slow enough that having my foot out the door was sufficient to stop the car. i want to increase the safety of my car, but i don't want to change it to disk brakes for many reasons, and...

    I have a 1971 mustang coupe with front disc/rear drum brakes. The master cylinder was recently replaced to hopefully remedy a small leak in the old one. Now, the brakes are worse than ever. The pedal is very spongy, and even when pushed to the floor the car only coasts to a stop (if i'm lucky)...

    Hello, its been awhile since Ive been on here, my 65' has been keeping me busy..so heres a couple questions I have if anyone can help. 1. I believe that a previous owner may have installed a different master cyclinder in the car. Reason being, I order parts from mustangsunlimited.com and the...

    Hi all. I have a 1965 mustang convertible in my shop. It has OE front disk rear drum set up. It had lost its brake pedal because the fluid had leaked out of the master cylinder. The owner said it was a fairly new master but the only leak I can find is at the back of the piston. It is leaking...

    I'd like to convert my 66 coupe with manual trans to dual master cylinder and possibly power brakes. I'm on a budget and feel certain disc brakes are not possible. Can you suggest a kit or how to piece together parts in order to do this. When I start I'd like to be certain I have all...

    I'm working on my '68 coupe that has been garaged for 15 years. When I first started messing around with the car one of the front brakes (drums) was frozen, and the master cylinder was empty. I assume the brake fluid must have evaporated, as there was no stain on the garage floor from leaking...
