Sj Brake Master Cylinder

Post by Famerbennie » Sat May 26, 2018 12:53 pm

Hi all think i need to replace the brake master on the trusty sj. The two pipes come out the bottom of the master at the moment. Are there any others i can use ie vitara etc. Many thanks

Whats the actual problem with your existing one?

There are different versions but without looking i can’t remember the specifics.

Thinks its like brake calipers, a jap version and a spanish version.

Servo or non Servo?

Jap or Spanish?

On a sj413 or sami
Aluminium it's jap
Black and rusty steel it's spanish

Servo on a 410 santana if that helps.

I think the seals gone inside as pedal goes almost to the floor but if pumped a couple of times it gets better.

Its not low on brake fluid?

No air in the brake lines?

Brake fluid leaks?

Double pumping, I'd expect a sticky caliper with worn out pads (discs maybe on the minimum) or shoes that have worn think.

Does the pedal creep down slowly when you hold the brakes ?
