How long will the original master cylinder typically last? I'm at 149,000 and growing concerned.

Master cylinders are like water pumps. There is nothing definitive. They can last 10K or 300K.

Luckily mine failed right after I parked it. I wasn't driving when it happened. They are pretty inexpensive though, and easy to change once they do go.
