  • though i was done with my brakes

    i just finished going through my brakes all new lines and everything but when i went to bleed them the master cylinder started leaking aout the front, i guess it was to far gone to rebuild. anyone have one laying around that i can put my rebuild kit in. thanks

    I had the same thing happen when I put a new master cylinder in my 52. I thought that since I had installed it about 2 years ago and hadn't put brake fluid in it, that the seals were dried up. It dripped for a couple of weeks, but now it has stopped. I am planing on changing over to a dual master cylinder anyway. I bought the kit from Turner.

        Don't take chances with your brakes, get a NEW master cylinder!

        They are $84.00 now, (without Disc. Bks.). I have some I bought before the increase, I'll sell you one for $73.00! (Delivered free to SB) Rich.

            I would second getting the Turner dual master kit for a Hawk. Do not
            take a chance with brakes, do it right the first time. As I have been
            mentioning on this forum, I had a rebuilt rear wheel cylinder blow out
            on my '60 Hawk coming off the freeway at 70 mph. I got lucky in that
            there was no one at the usually busy light, or around the corner. I
            got the car slowed down by down shifting, but it was at that time it
            became obvious that my parking brake wasnt adjusted well enough. It is
            one of my scariest experiences driving. Upon inspection of the wheel
            cylinder the culprit was a defective rubber cup seal which had an air
            bubble that ruptured allowing brake fluid to pass through. Not good.
