this may seem dumb, but does this MC fit a tracker booster the same as a sammi?

Has anyone found a MC with 1" or bigger bore that will be a bolt on to the sidekick tracker.

so i did the subi mc this week wow talk about easy. the bolt mod is all that takes any kind of time. and with 37" creepy's this thing will stop. this is much better than it used to be! had to pump it to get it to stop. even after bleading the breaks it wouldn't build enough to stop. now the peddle will only go half way and stopped! sweet. this was all of 15 min to put in, it toke longer to go get the bolt than to do the work.

but the install of the subi mc is way easy. and my toy axles with 37's on them will lock them up in the dirt! and wow stop very well out on the street. mind you i cant go over 20mph but they do stop nice.

i did find out. close but no cigar! the problem (other than length) is that my tracker booster was sealed by an o-ring on the stock master cyl. not wanting to machine an o-ring groove, i put it back on the shelf. holes lined up pretty well though.

The o-ring is to keep dirt out, just put little silacone on master cylinder and use it.

More details? Did you try to put a samy booster in a track/kick? Or just try a samy master on the track/kick booster?

i was going to try a sammi booster, but i am bidding farewell to raging squirrel to build a sammi. the tower in front of the master has to be trimmed too. the ford master is twice as long. i may try it any way just to see if it is functional before we take her apart. i'm sure others would like to know.

Are you sure you have the push rod adjusted correctly? Also make sure your bleeder valves on your calipers are up right. My subi mc with the exact same setup you have.

yeah i made a new pushrod that just barely tocuhes the master cyl when you put it on the booster, and all four bleeders are up high on the caliper. Did you guys do anything to the stock proportioning valve?
