Friggin’ hydraulics!

I bought a slave cylinder for the known failures…So, I replaced it and replaced the flex-line, and curly cue with a braided stainless from Advanced Autosports while I was at it. Seems like a prudent plan, eh?

Well, guess what….the master cylinder is bad! Apparently, the reservoir isn’t draining into the cylinder. When I tried to bleed the system no fluid was pulled out of the res. Every time I opened the bleed screw with the pedal released you could hear the air sucking back into system.  Perhaps the MC could be fixed (find what’s plugging the opening from the res. into the MC)….but, is that the right approach for a 20 year old car headed to the race track?  Probably not.
