    Replacement clutch master question

    I ordered a girling replacement clutch master off ebay . It seems identical to the DMC one on the outside except the connector.

    When I opened it up to change the rod I noticed a girling one seems to have a 19 millimeter piston and the DMC one seems to have a 22 millimeter piston.

    Obviously, smaller piston, less fluid movement. Not sure if I should mount it or get a DMC one.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Jeff

    Take the old one apart and see what the bore looks like. If it is smooth with no deep pits maybe just stick a kit in it. If it is corroded I would not use the smaller one. I would get the proper size.

    I agree. Man, I really hate ebay. I hardly ever buy from there and often got screwed. Most legit stores/online shops have what I want.

    The bore seems fine, I check it as carefully as I could. Actually, the seals appear fine too. Do you know which rebuild kit is for this unit David?

    I checked the older thread, someone recommend Fenco #22320 from autozone. I called and that is not in the computer.

    Thanks

    Ok, update.. the bore is no good. It has grooves in it. New master time.

    I was going to get one that has a stainless liner in it. That should last forever.

    I guess CMK351685 is no longer available.
    Any known alternatives?
