Master Cylinders

A1 Cardone Master Cylinders

Master cylinders are control devices that convert brake peddle pressure into hydraulic pressure. The master cylinder controls wheel cylinders located at the other end of the system in the brake calipers and/or drum brakes. The wheel cylinders push brake pads towards the surface of either the drum or disc rotor, causing friction and ultimately bringing the wheel to a stop.

Piston bore wear and piston seal failure are the most common problems that occur in master cylinders. The most common symptom of a failing master cylinder is a brake pedal that slowly sinks under pressure. The cure for this is to replace the master cylinder.

Bristol Automotive Parts, Inc carries a wide variety of A1 Cardone master cylinders for both newer and older vehicles. Many of our older, or vintage master cylinders, are available through our on-line store.

 

If you don’t see a master cylinder for your application, contact us using the contact page or call us during the regular working hours posted at the bottom of this page and we will happily check our complete inventory for you.

Note:

The pictures in our master cylinder on-line store are representative pictures only. If you would like to see a picture of the master cylinder you are interested in, let us know and we post it on-line as soon as we can.
