    Default Master cylinder from scratch? Anyone here ever do it?

    Has anyone here ever made a master cylinder for the rear brakes from scratch on either a lathe or a mill?

    I'm going to make one but not sure where to get seals suitable for brake fluid or if there is a company that sells brake Mc seals in various sizes.

    Are you talking about making the actual master cylinder or the reservoir? Or both?

    I am not the droid you're looking for.

    More years ago than I care to admit I bought a rear master from a little machine (whose name escapes me right now) shop in Oklahoma city that they totally made in house except for the o-rings they sealed the piston with. They started with aluminum bar for the main body and cap and round aluminum stock for the piston. I don't know what the o-rings were but I replaced them years later with Viton o-rings and they were still in it last time I saw it 7 or 8 years later. They made the main body and cap in a CNC mill and the piston in a lathe they made it while I waited at the counter, since my attention span is short must not have been very long.

    Just machine your master to accept readily available stock style guts. Thats what most of the aftermarket guys do anyway.
