Ok thanx. by the way, i got the pins out with a thin flatblade scredriver that was still be enough not to wedge in the pins. Even though it does wedge in the pin holes on the old cylinder, its bad anyway and the screwdriver wasnt that great itself

Your replacement master cylinder will probably come with new roll pins, so I wouldn't worry about bending the old ones (and you can always get 'em at a good hardware store, too). The main thing is not to break the reservoir while you're removing it, since you'll be needing to reuse that.

Well i got the new cylinder on now and just about everything is done except bleeding the lines. how do i do that. also i think a little air got into the cylinder when i was putting it back on, because when i removed the bleeder line adapters, some fluid seeped out of the cylinder. thanx. By the way i was thinking the new one would come with new pins too but it didnt. the old ones are still in good shape, i wasnt too rough on them

Jachin, tell me which service manual you have, and I can refer you to the right page. I have ALL of them.

I dont have a service manual, im using the instructions, but they are for multple cars and there are some things that arent always clear. Im mainly asking about this online because i would rather get the info from someone that has done it to this specific car.

Jachin, you're killing us here. Buy a book. Chilton'* #28200 for 15 bucks if you can't afford the FSM set.

You shouldn't be attempting half of what you're doing without the book, irregardless of our advice and experience.

Ok im sorry im kind of an *** about these things at times, but if you guys dont really guide me through this stuff, i wont have any other way. Ive already ordered the chilton'* manual, but until it gets here i need help with one last thing. I have the new cylinder installed and all of that, and it stops good, but my pedal heigth sux, The instructions say that if this happens, i should bleed the lines at the caliper, how do i do that. thanx
