  • master cylinder question

    Hi all, I have a 39 Commander with a bad master cylinder and am having a difficult time finding a replacement. I have been told that there are some master cylinders out there from different years and makes that are interchangeable or compatabke with my 39. Anybody know if that is true. Thanks for the help. Jim

    If you can't find one, have it bored out and a stainless steel sleeve pressed in.

      I have not bought one for quite a while, but the underfloor M/C for most/many/all? underfloor Studebakers including 1941 Commanders) stayed "available" for years because they were also used on fork lifts (Towmotor brand, I think). Try a parts shop that also supplies some industrial customers.
