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

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
