    Need help with brake master cylinder

    Hello guys.

    I need some help from the "pros". The thing is i got a 1971 1.3 escort GT rebuilt to original specs about 6 years ago. When i did the rebuild i had problems with the original Girling master cylinder, so i sent the master cylinder to a shed that does the master cylinder rebuild stuff . But guess what 6 years past ant the thing is acting up again, the pedal goes all the way down, and i bled it several times. So im tired of it, but i want to keep the original look. So seaching the ebay ive seen this rs 2000 brake master cylinder ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MK1-...53.m1438.l2649 ). So the big question is, if your familiar with the product, will this fit? Ive questioned the seller several times but he doesnt answer my questions, so maybe you whould know...


    Thanks in advance

    You should have a single outlet cylinder originally all single outlet ones should fit fine BUT I would seriously think about replacing with a split circuit system, you can still make it look like it was meant to be there but its much safer.

    Re: Need help with brake master cylinder

    Thanks for the reply Clint. Mine has allready two outlets, and its a tandem system. My question was more about the diameter of the two outlets beeing the same. because some years ago i heard from some guy, that the rs2k Master had bigger diameter outlets. One thing that i can do if thats the case is, changing all the brake lines to that new diameter. Guess thats a risk i will have to take...

    Not sure of diameter but they may be imperial on the Mk1 and Metric on the Mk2, I actually dont know, maybe someone else has the answer ?

    What that guy probably meant was that a RS2 master cylinder has a bigger internal bore diametre.
