Old thread but hoping new options may be out there now? So...looking for peoples "real experiences" please.
I need a new Master Cylinder - No doubt in my mind OEM is the best but are super pricey. As I look online there's the typical options between rebuilt ones, rebuild kits, aftermarket....
What are experts latest thoughts ?- Who has had you had luck with options other than OEM?
This may or may not help. I just bought a rebuilt master for a 1993 fj80 from advanced auto (I purchased it for a rear disc conversion on my '78). It ended up being a rebuilt aisin. It was around $50-60 after the 20% discount for ordering online, if I remember correctly. I don't have many mikes on it but it is functioning perfectly thus far.
I ordered 2 master cylinders off Rock Auto a while back as spares. I picked a certain brand because I could tell from the photos online that they were Aisin in another brand box. When they came in, they didn't look anything like the Aisins in the photo. I called the distributor and they said they used to sell Aisin but now they were making their own version. I sent them both back for a refund. Aisin only for me and my 79.
