Master Cylinder Install Question

Question for those of you who have installed an aftermarket Bendix master cylinder on their Bendix brake booster, I have a question.The aftermarket unit has a groove around the periphery of the puck that inserts into the booster. Should an O-Ring be placed in the groove? If not, will the booster leak vacuum? What is your experience? If an O-Ring is required, then what ID/OD? My OEM MC didn't have a groove nor O-Ring. Thanks.See More
