Haha! That's awesome! I had a girl at Checker once tell me I wanted head gaskets not header gaskets.... Then she asked me if I needed to call someone to make sure I knew what I was looking for!! Haha, I'm probably a better mechanic than most the guys she knows. Anyway...

Yeah, Auto Zone. I'd advise against it unless you're getting a battery or some car wash.

I found a way around that... I just find out who originally made the part and ask for that...

Master cylinder .... 70's GM
Most other brake parts.... 70's Dodge
"Engine" mounts ( )... 70's Jeep
Etc...


Now Im tryin' to get parts for my Rampage... well at least I can order them....

Learned it when I use to work on my moms 80's Caddy....

Funny a Cadillac Starter (or alternator) costs $100+, but one for a Buick is like $40???? Same part numbers, bolt patterns, and everything...

Pretty much International made Engines, chassis, & body...... Everything else was the big companies "left overs"...

Although some of my older mechanic buddies say AMC's were way worse.. Stands for "All Motors Combined"

So i put in the master cylinder today...didn't change it even a little bit...I made sure to bench bleed the HELL out of it when I first filled it, then put it on and bled all the brakes but to no avail

Just a thought. Maybe the hoses on the front brakes have gone soft?
