Master Cylinder Fitting

Post by Grodr625 » Thu Jun 01, 2017 10:24 pm

Does anyone know if there is a fitting that goes in the stock brake master cylinder? I had new line made for my S400 and had 1/2" - 20 fittings put on either end. There is no problem threading into my frame mounted booster, but the fitting is too short to thread into my master cylinder. It bottoms out without tightening the line at the MC. Before I take the line back, is there an adapter that will allow me to thread my current fitting into a longer one suited for this MC?

I recall my '66 D100 had a larger fitting that the brake line fitting screwed into, but this bus was missing the MC when I bought it.

Take the line back to the shop and have them put longer flare nuts on it.

there should be a brass banjo type fitting on the master cylinder that the line screws into.

Turns out it's considered a "Chrysler MC banjo" that threads into MC and causes line to run directly down from MC. Thanks to Bud for setting me straight and for shipping me this wacky fitting yesterday. Excellent community! None of the fitting or hydraulic shops knew how to get this one.
