1992 Legacy Turbo replacement brake master cylinder

Post by Olduser1 » Thu May 04, 2017 11:00 am

I would be interest to hear what owners in the USA do when faced with replacement brake master cylinder as in UK the parts are no longer available My 1992 Legacy Turbo has dual brake with ABS and the original cylinder is a NABCO 1 1/16th or 27mm bore part 26471AA031 is NA . The repair kit 26471AA031 is also NA
Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated

Fortunately I found a new brake MC a few years back. Are you able to get the repair kit? If not, my best suggestion would be to see what you can find possibly on ebay or if you find a decent used master cylinder use the parts from that to fix yours.

All the ABS equipped Legacies had the 1-1/16" bore master cylinder so you could look for a replacement on a non-turbo Legacy.

Josh, Thats a good suggestion, I'm waiting for comments back from other BC owners in England. I'll let the forum know how I overcome this issue. Thanks.
