Just had a new customer bring me his Sebring kit car. He purchased it in 1994. Love it. He's got a bad master cylinder. How do we identify the part and is there a good source for purchasing?

Chances are prettty high that it's a 1975 Mustang II master cylinder. Easiest way is to pull the master off and look for a casting number. The recommended master for the kit can be found in the build manual in the "Database" section of the forum, however the builder might have used pretty much any master cylinder. Worst comes to worst you can usually determine the brand by the cap style, and then work backwards from there measuring the distance between the two bolts of the mounting flange, and then the bore size.

Hope that helps, you can always post a picture up and see if someone recognizes it.

Second what David says.
Will add that casting numbers will give you the correct style, BUT, the casting can be drilled to different bore sizes. Also, the threaded ports can be different sizes.
This era of master cylinders are almost always for front disc / rear drum systems. Make sure it matches what you have as well.
