The master cylinder started leaking about a week ago. My sun has been driving it to the collage and back as a daily driver. he pulled in and the thing was smelt like burnt brake pads, and the rims were so hot we could not even touch them. He said it had been smelling all the way home. Guessing he was doing around 70 for about forty miles or so on the way home and forty five for ten miles extra to the house. After it cooled of I looked and there was break fluid leaking out of the mating surface between the power break booster and the master cylinder. After calling three parts stores nobody had a Master cylinder for a 1972 listed. We found out that AutoZone at 44 bucks with reservoir, discount at 65 with out reservoir. Orile at 52 with out reservoir, had a 1974 Master Cylinder. listed. I ordered the one from AutoZone and waited three days for it to get here.
When it arrived I noticed the ports for the lines were on the passenger side instead of the drivers side like the old one we took off. The following is some of the work that it took to get every thing lined up, and working again with the new product.

Brake fluid must have been a slow leak for a while for it to get all that rust. we just started to have to add fluid about four days or so ago.

You could just bend the old lines around and reuse them, but I think it look bad doing it that way/

I am going for that abused and used look. after I sanded down the rust on the booster and sprayed it with some high temp clear coat, I sprayed the new master with some clear coat also. least we forget new stainless steel nuts and washers.

I just could not stand the old break lines looking so bad. out came some new line and the flaring tool so I can get them to look like this.

and some new pads as he wasted the old ones by driving them with the brakes on for thirty miles or so. The rotors looked ok. not burnt or blue. Note to people it has calipers of a 1982 iszu pick up on it. Mot the factory Luv calipers for that year.

It seems the light switch for a 1984 Iszue is a direct fit for my 1972

Which led to having to notch onside and to cut a section out so I can get to the bolts.

you have to pull the exhaust pipes loos so you can get a wrench in to work on things. they both had bad gaskets that I was going to replace anyway. this is the passenger side
