Welp bad news captspillane, the master cyl you suggested to me on my other post seems to be back ordered for over 90 days...any other leads you might have on where i could find one?
About three years ago I went to order a Clutch Master Cylinder from Rock Auto and they didn't have any. I tried everywhere and anywhere to get one. Eventually a local National Auto guy looked up contact information for a supplier in a catalog and he actually ordered 6 of them for me special order (at $85 a piece) supposedly directly from the people making them. About a year later I got an email from Rockauto advertising a closeout deal on them. I was very surprised because I had ordered everything I could from Rockauto just a short time before. I ordered their whole supply then too.
Since then I haven't ordered any (at one point I had ten spares, now I'm down to four) but I look them up in Rockauto every once in awhile. Their listings change often for whatever reason. I think it's because Rockauto sells auto parts like Amazon sells books. They seem to just coordinate between several big companies.
My opinion now is that if you can't get one from them this month, check back next month. When they're back on sale buy two so you don't have to worry about waiting next time. They are still being made by somebody because it has happened multiple times in the past.
