Brakes

Okay I've gravity and vacuum bled my brakes but they just dont brake. I can put the pedal to the floor without resistance. Does this mean I have to put in a new master cylinder, which means I get to upgrade to the vette MS I've been waiting to put in?? This is a 90 YJ for reference

Sounds like the m.c. is shot. The corvette m.c. is the way to go with the bigger axles but its going to run like crap with the stock brakes.

is the 60 going to be disk or drum? if drum, the EC 350 MC might be a better fit for your app.

When you say run like crap are you referring to overly sensitive????

I'm gunna run drums till I can afford disk which will be next year, cuz I wanna get my locker first so that'll take priority. Simply cuz I'm running 35's which aren't super hard to stop with drums. The E350 isn't a direct bolt on though is it??? I know the Corvette one bolts up without any modification but I thought the E350 needed to be modded.

EC 350 should just be hogging out the holes to 9/16" and shaving the ears to fit. not much work at all.

OOh for some reason I thought it was more than that. I'll have to call up Advanced Auto today to see if they carry them Anybody have some PN's for the E350 or Corvette MC??? The people at my local parts stores are really dumb and usually give me the wrong thing.
