In Reply to: what m/c should I use for '68 1600? posted by it's been a while -todd on June 25, 2001 at 16:53:48:

First of all, which master do you have?

Do you:

A: Have a normal vacuum booster bolted to the firewall, or

B: A small, funky looking vacuum booster that is mounted on the side of the engine compartment, is bolted to the brake slave cylinder, connected to the pedal box-mounted master cylinder via hardlines?

If you have type "A", then Carl Nelson in La Jolla ( has your part, for $99.

If you have type "B" your only hope is Jaymic in the UK (

Hope this helps,

'68 1600-2

There is some slight pitting in my '68 1600's master cylinder. Enough that the brakes will slowly lose pressure at a stop. No one seems to offer the stock master cylinder anymore. All later bmw m/c's have the outlets coming out the bottom and I don't want to make short u-intermediate lines untill I exhaust all other alternatives. Any ideas?
