so there is another master cylinder besides the clutch master? Isnt this a mjor design flaw...What if I was doing 130mph(which my 88 9000T still does with 190,000) and I lost my brakes then? Thank god I was parked. It seems to dangerous..And too sudden..With my clutch I noticed it start to be bad before it was actaully not drivable...I was able to redo the seals in that cylinder myslef..I have a 9000 haynes manual and since I have ABS I have to go thorugh hell to get it out..Well anyway its at a shop and I was just looking to what it could be...Still the master?
