I last had the brake master cylinder replaced at about 20 years since new. I have been using three suppliers and am asking if anyone had better luck getting the correct part: Sunbeam Specialties, Inc. Campbell, CA, Classic Sunbeam Auto Parts, Ossining, NY, and, of course Victoria British, KS. Yesterday I noticed a very squishy pedal requiring many pumps to stop. There is no leaking fluid or overheating wheels from a locking caliper. Thanks!

I was recently informed by one of our members on the SAOCA that he had purchased booster from VB that was listed in their Spring Catalog (It was on sale ). He says it fit his Tiger and it is functioning well.

Last week I found a correct master brake cylinder from Classicsunbeam.com in Ossining, NY for my 1964 Series IV GT Alpine. So, I'm good for now, again!
