Default Lincoln master cylinder

Hey guys, I hope Iím not too far out of line here but I have a Lady friend who has a 55 Lincoln Capri with a power brake master cylinder in bad need of a rebuild. Anyone know of a good source to do this. Thanks

It is actually called a "treadle-vac" --- a power brake / master cylinder combined unit / assembly.... There is only one man that does them correctly...
They are NOT cheap.....

Call me for details --- Craig --- 516 - 485 - 1935...... New York.....

Lincolns. Another "Lincoln Land" Florida. I bought one for my Lincoln 'reman" they are a
little pricey but so what ya gonna do "its 2020" sam

I had my Midland Hy-Power vacuum booster rebuilt by Ed Strain who is located in FL. He has been bought by White Post but Ed still does the work. I was very happy with the rebuilt and discussions I had with him. He does the Treadle-Vac units too.

Yes Ed is great for fixing these! Note that he was bought by White Post.

Ed is also an anti-silicone brake fluid guy ;-))


Oh he also strongly recommended exercising your brakes even up and down the driveway if you can't get out.
