...i'm ATLEAST a year off needing a new master cylinder
Posted 22 January 2009 - 06:39 PM
Can anyone tell me if there brake kits are worth while, was thinking bout their stage 3 front kit and stage 4 rear, US$385 = AU$548 and $785=$1191 respectively. Also dont know if break pads are hard to get in Oz for their callipers.
I probably will be saving a bit if i find each of the components my self. BTW how much is RobCo engineering asking for a pair of rear adapters.

But i will start going to some wreckers and having a look, 1980's Hilux calipers yer?
*Are there performance pad for the hilux calipers?

ok i checked with my supplier and they don't have any in stock. recently it has been very hard to get these parts since they come off a car that if getting to be more rare. i can get someone to go to the local gunk yard and get six of them for me then i could send them to be professionally rebuilt but that would raise the price of each master cylinder by $25.
that's the best i could do right now. i'm really sorry for the inconvenience.
Still seems reasonable to me . Any Thoughts ?

There stage three front kit is Non Ventilated. Stage 4 might be a closer match to Lurch's set. Looks like they use 300zx 4 lug rotors which used to sell in the us for about $100.00 US a pair on Ebay ( Drilled and Slotted ) .All they need is spacers like these.(No Machining) Might ask for just spacers and rotors? and get them in the MC Order?
Different size ones if you have 240z hubs. Sach ,PM me as i know a wrecker in NSW who has Calipers i think. Sell them on Ebay and gets $120 ? a pair normally.

As long as your happy with that option, then go for it

they replied to me saying the same thing, postage for 4 or 6 would be US$60 to melb, the only difference being with 6 they will be bubble wrapped instead of in their box for the reco place - simply to fit them all in.
this makes them US$100 each, which with todays conversion rate is $155, so...how much was the one on ebay? any chance of the AUD ever recovering....

I'll fix you up at Thredbo

is this still up and running?
my 240z MC just doesn't cut it after i did the rear brake conversion. Just feels spongey somewhat.
It would be good to get my hands on a 280zx 15/16 MC.

Price has also been bumped up as well since January.

Fufu let me know the difference in sponge when you get it hooked up.

Well I can confirm they are still available, at least through Autobarn. I have one on order. JB1419 is the part number. I would be interested to see if they are making the patrol 15/16th master aswell.
Just to update this thread for others looking for 280ZX Brake Master Cylinders.
I have just phoned Autobarn at Albion Park NSW and confirmed that the JB1419 is still available.
(*edit - JB1419 is the 1" - not the the 15/16" 280ZX MC)
Their list price is $159.00.
I have one ordered and I will post a pic or two when I get it.
Thanks for the lead Scott!
