And today, some revelation on ABS delete using your stock master cylinder.
Alright, here's the get go.
First, since the new master cylinder is actually identical to the factory unit, I had to change out the bowls to make the new master cylinder fit without hitting the strut bar.
Here's the similarities that made me change it around. The black bowls are from the new unit and the white one is the original.
You can see the fill top is toward the firewall which keeps you from using the black bowls.
Just pull the pins you see holding it down with a pair of vice grips and pop off the bowl from the master cylinder.
So I still keep the original setup that I had looking like this but 1/4 the weight of the abs module. That thing is heavy and consider this a weight reduction couple of points.
The following pictures will show you how to disassemble your own master cylinder/ abs module unit.
Once you remove everything off of the firewall, you have this.
There's two screws that hold down the black top/ bottom of the abs module so remove those and the cover should reveal the gear sets.
Next, there's two more screws to remove and once done, the entire black gearset and solenoid section should remove from the master cylinder as you can see below.
Next are the two screws that need to be removed to reveal the master cylinder from the abs module bracket.
Once done, you have this.
So in reality, you can just modify your existing master cylinder and have full abs delete and some weight savings too.
So what's the difference between this pictured below and what I bought.
So here's what I did.
I drilled out the two bottom holes for the heck of it with a 3/8 drill bit.
Once done, took out my 7/16 tap and tapped them out for this.
It worked and this adaptor is quite easy to use.
Also, the top two are 12mmx1.o which I've still got to do some research to see if they make a banjo bolt for that size. It's already setup as a banjo that all is needed are some proper bolts.
Or they can be drilled out too to the 7/16 size.
With a proper flare tool, you could reflare your factory hardlines to 37 degree AN size for an easy setup to your now adapted to AN master cylinder.
I should've seen this long before now.
So we can actually have abs delete with out stuff.
I'll continue with this as I get more information on the setup.
With the new unit having 4 different connections on the master cylinder, I may just continue with mine that I took off the car once modified and continue on with it.
But then again, I wanted to go with new too.
Thanks for looking.
