    anyone know where i can get a replacement. I bought and exact replacement from napa a few years back but they can't seem to carry it anymore.
    It's for a 71 with disk brakes. i like the stock replacement cause both tanks are the same size and the bore is 1-1/8". the replacement they want to offer me now has a larger tank and a smaller tank.

    any help appriciated.
    cast number is 5468115

    thanks,

    ARQ.

    Didn't know getting the stock type would be a problem...
    Have you tried all the other parts stores to see if you could get one?

    You might also look into just having yours rebuilt. I know there are a few places around here that could do stuff like that...

    You might want to try emailing Leland.

    nothing wrong with using the later m/c i dont know why you are bent on getting exact one and speinding more $ most likely, they made a billion different castings, 71-87 will work, i would get a heavy half gmc or big 10 chevy one '73-'80 years, it would have larger bore

    rebuild shops for m/c's ? boy cali is wierd.

    never heard of such a shop, hmm.


    good luck

    the m/c i have has both tanks the same size. that's what i was lookin for in my replacement since i'm going with rear disk brakes. just want to have that extra fluid in there.

    there are plenty of shops near here(south of the border) that will rebuild them, i just didn't want to spend all day looking for a good one and have to spend the same amount for a rebuilt/new one.

    then again i could just be picky... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
