Re: brake help

Thanks for the offer Owen. I can get a kit here likely before lunch if I call first thing in the morning. I just came in from the shop after honing the master and it's measuring about .005 over one inch. The original seals are measuring .030 over one inch. That's enough to make a seal, so new ones will be much better. Also, I put everything back together just for fun and was getting good sealing. Do I dare??? Naw..don't think so, but I bet it would work. But that would be for desperate times. Almost all the ripples came out after honing, I got a really nice shiney finish, just like when I was rebuilding hydraulic cylinders for a living. New seals are going to make a world of difference, and I also think I could get another re-build out of the casting down the road. I still want to find another master cyinder, so tomorrow, I will post a picture of the casting. Maybe someone will know where I can get one. Also thought of trying some forklift companies. Lots of forklifts around from the time of Moses and parts should still be available. Again, thanks for the offer of help Owen.

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Yes I can, but that is in upwards of $170.00, plus shipping, plus brokerage, plus duty to here in Ontario, Canada. I would prefer to replace my master due to what the reservoir looks like inside, but a $32.00 rebuild kit is looking pretty good right now. The one I did get, although was wrong was only $93.00. I'll get a rag out now and wipe my tears, because of the whining I am posting.(LOL)

Bust. Went to get a master cylinder and using that number to cross over and it's not the same. Pulled mine off and the casting number in it is FE 1108. Anybody got info on this one. Not having much luck with this number either. I can get a rebuild kit for mine, but the bore may end up oversize when I hone the ripples out. Thank you in advance for all who assist.

Could some one please give me the original wagner FD number for the master cylinder on a 49 Deluxe. I've seen here in a posting and cannot find it. The funny or ironic part is, I participated in the posting.

Re: filter change

Mine is a 49 Deluxe with the 288 and it has the filter. Guess by what Owen says it's an option. Nice! I was just wondering if it was possible to give it better filtration. Obviously not a viable option, but that's ok. It worked well when the car was made so it will work 60 some years later. Thanks guys for the heads up.

Had a rough idea that there was a reason it wasn't like that from the factory. Thanks.

Yes, it's the factory set up. Thank you HH56, you have been a great help in answering a lot of my questions.
I was also wondering if anybody has converted to a full flow filter, and is it practical?

Could someone tell me the filter for a 48 Deluxe with the 288. I just bought it, the oil looks good, but want to change it before I put it away for the winter. I was unable to find anything in the xref list. Thanks in advance.
