  • Brakes: Master cylinder question

    Working on the 57 Provincial (finally). Car is getting complete new brakes- all new shoes, wheel cylinders, hoses, lines, and master.

    Am currently looking for a master cylinder. I want to stay with a bolt-on single master, stock-type. My understanding is that a Wagner PN 2796 will fit (from Nate's site). Looking around I found a new one for a good price. However, the number shows as F2796. Is this the same? What does the 'F' denote?

    A forum search did not turn up an answer to this, at least that I could find.

    P.S. I did recall the below thread, but I'm not sure it answers my specific question:

    Or maybe Warren did. Clarification?

            Question- What bore should this master be? We're thinking 1 1/8". Is this correct?

                      A bigger bore will give you a harder pedal push, but a shorter stroke.

                            Thanks, all. I found prices for this master from $165 down to what I paid, which was $42 including shipping; quite a spread in maybe 15 minutes' worth of research. That's not CASO, that's just dilligence!
