Lightbulb How To Install Master Cylinder Video

Hey everyone. Just adding to my library of "how to" videos. I wanted to do the drill mod on my master cylinder, so I decided to make a how to video about how to do it and how to remove and re-install the master cylinder. I hope this helps anyone who has been afraid to do the install themselves. Enjoy! Also, the drill mod fixed my sticky clutch pedal!

And again thanks to everyone on this site that has helped me along the way. This is a great site. The video is about 11min long. The install from start to finish while video taping took about 3 hours by myself.

I like your way of flushing thew fluid out better than how I did it.. Come to think of it... I mean why flush the shavings all the way through the line. I set up a bench bleeding rig to do mine.. Basically a bench, vice and a piece of sheet metal to hold the reservoir above the master.



Good vid bro!


Getting it out is a pain.. Getting it in is worse.. But I suppose once you do it a couple times, you find the little tricks and shortcuts.

And of course the "But he stops the camera! Look his hands are clean" claims.. kidding dude. Good vid.. I saw your Gas mileage video, I was getting similar but not AS good out west with my setup. I pulled 400 miles to a tank of gas and 200 for a half a tank, but the gas worked out to be 28 mpg around there.
