Can I put a master cylinder off of a 78 f-350 on my bronco with out changing the booster? I searched but it did not show this. My Bronco is a 78.

Thanks

I believe so, you may have to adjust the pushrod length tho. I'm planning on doing just that when tis warm enough out there to run new brake lines.

Yes you change just the master cylinder. I would suggest you buy a new one vice a rebuilt one. Just make sure you check the length of the boost push rod first before you put the new master cylinder on. Also bench bleed the master cylinder before you install it.

As long as i get one off of a 78 f-350 i should be good to go from what ive heard. I want to get a little better feel in the pedal.

Don't waist your time just swapping the M/C, replace the booster with an F-350 as well. Also upgrade to the larger 350 wheel cylinders out back.

I need a concrete ansewer if i can just do the master cylinder? I need to know before i go buy one. I dont have the extra cash to get a booster right now and with the dual piston calipers up front i need the extra line pressure.
