Hi Charlie.

The cover of my 70 Grabber master cylinder is held down by one bolt that goes down through the center. Do you know if this is the original equipment part, or did it leave the factory with a "bail" hold down, like most other covers?

Thanks.

Mine had the bail... what's your build date?

May, 1970. I just pulled the motor and looked up close at the master -- it looks original (undercoated when new, and the firewall bolts look undisturbed). I've seen a thumbscrew securing the cap on an old single reservoir type, but had not seen the same arrangement on a dual res.

Thanks.

Mopars had those type of master cylinders. I don't remember seeing them on Fords.

I think it's probably aftermarket. Wagner and Raybestos, among others, make new (not reman) master cylinders that usually don't look the same as OEM. It was probably replaced long ago.
