Per my other thread, looks like I'll be replacing by brake master cylinder ASAP. I figured I'd start another thread on that so there's a reference for anyone else looking to replace theirs.
So, what parts to use? I have one I pulled from a parts another car that had 112K miles on it and was working fine. Been in storage, drained (no special prep, just in a box, maybe a baggie) 3+ years ago.
Best choice for safety and ease of job? Ease of job is high on my list these days.
1. Use my 120K used one from storage as is
2. Buy a professionally rebuilt (brand?)
3. Rebuild my used one and install (issues with scratching seals going in? Hones needed?)
4. Rebuild my current one and re-install (issues with scratching seals going in? Hones needed?)
New Saab is $650.
ATE is $260. Might be OEM (but who knows what that means in listings anymore)
Centric $100 (no seal /o-ring to booster included; weird, all the others include it).
Metelli $65- $155 (don't understand the wide range, but I think it's an economy part. Maybe).
All appear to be new, not rebuilt.
