It should be plumbed properly already...


Buy a spare CENTRIC brand master cylinder as your backup.

FedEx just dropped off a bunch of disc brake parts for my conversion. I decided on a late 620 MC with 13/16” bore, designed for disc/drum. I’ll be keeping my rear drum brakes. Does the Cardone MC come with the residual valves already installed, or do I need to buy those separate?


I don't think you need to do anything more to the master... I did the same thing got a dual master for front disc/rear drum and things seem to work just fine...

Why is that a good read? I’m using neither of those.

Poorly cleaned "remanufactured," over priced junk.

I'd rather rebuild anything with original, used seals than put an iota of trust in anything with a Car done label.

It’s a new one, not remanufactured.

Makes no difference. For a dollar or two more, you could have bought a top shelf part.


I work in the automotive field...using cardone is a big no-no.

Many, MANY threads around here stating the same.
