    So my clutch pedal went soft 2 days ago. I was able to drive it home but I basically just floated the gears and if I had to stop I pumped the clutch a few times to get it to disengage.

    Looking for newer master cylinder

    I have a 1985 Ranger that is a full drag truck with a 408" stroker motor and am looking for a better master cylinder to the '85 stock one. Would a newer Ranger ( or ??) with disc brakes fit? Thanks in advance for help.

    I'm doing the 97 dual piston new knuckle/rotor upgrade, for my 93 4.0 2wd, and I was probably going to replace the POS Duralast master cylinder with a motor craft one. My question is should I stick with a 93 master cylinder, or change it to the 97 master cylinder so it matches all the other...

  8. 93 ranger slave or master cylinder?

    I've looked online to figure if it’s my slave cylinder or master cylinder going out. The symptoms seem to be the exact same. But I'm not replacing both. I'm taking it to the shop to get worked on, since the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and it could get pricey. When I start the...

The kind that need cuss words at the people who thought them up. Then, tell everyone why it was stupid and promise you will never design...
