MK2 Golf Brake Master Cylinder Question.
Some of you may know that my master cylinder needs to be replaced... I'm looking for a non-power master cylinder, so I can get rid of the brake booster and vacuum pump, reducing weight and parasitic losses.

Ideally, it should be a bolt in unit, but if anyone knows what cars I should be looking at, or even has one laying about for sale or free, it would be appreciated.

I think you have to find like a 1964 model to not have power brakes :)

Just get some more leverage/travel. Raise the pedal pivot up and lengthen the arm (or pound the floor lower and lengthen the arm). My golf never really had power brakes, no sweat.

edit: I suppose you could also change where the plunger connects with the pedal slightly, for more leverage, and maybe increase the pedal travel by grinding on something.
