On a modern car, the master cylinder is typically located directly in front of the driver, just under the hood. Not so with cars from the early 50's. The master cylinder in my old studebaker is directly under the driver's feet, bolted to the frame.
|It had been so long since my last post, that I didn't remember to take a pic until I had the master cylinder (above) almost out.|
|Old and tired master cylinder. Note the single hydraulic outlet at the back|
|Here's a crappy picture of a shiny master cylinder bracket.|
One thing--I removed the hill holder assembly as part of this. I need to rebuild it. At this point, I'm going to set it aside, and get things running without it. It will be easy enough to plumb into the system at a later date.
Been a while; it sure feels good to be working on the ol' Stude again.
