Does anybody know where I might get hold of an overhaul kit for a master cylinder for a 79 99t, or failing that... a reconditioned unit, as my car has been off the road for 2 months without....

Thanks as always...

Is it not exactly the same item as the early flat front c900's used too?

Jamsaab definately sell the seal kits, or you could try a lucas/girling agent. The part number is on that big plastic cable tie that goes round it i think (or stamped on the side).

Loads of vehicles used very similar master cylinders so the kit should be easy to get (my landrover uses one which is almost identical as i have just fitted a saab servo to the landrover!)

Thanks T.... My Mini has I believe the same unit as well... been tempted to pinch it!
I think the bores may vary between the models, but there are probably loads of cylinders with different castings (to support different pipe threads and positions) that use the same seal kit.
My landrover is one of 3000 of a particular model and the seal kit is easy to get so i cant see the saab being hard when there were hundreds of thousands of them made! ;)

Edit - just checked! - PFS sell both seal kits and complete master cyls! easy!

Mine is out of order too on the 1977 99 GL . I loose a lot of brake liquid :cry:
So I ordered a brand new one to PFS but it's not available anymore .
Here's my request and the answer of PFS :
"Hello,
I ordered a master cylinder for a saab 99 (number 123 413) but the item is
not exactly the same because there is a contact for stop lights on the
genuine.
If you\'ve got the same master cylinder with contact, it is possible to make
an exchange ? If you don\'t send the parts, it is possible to have a credit
for a next order or a refund.

Thanks for all"

PFS :

"Hello

You are welcome to return this if you wish for refund. Please enclose a copy
of your invoice when returning the item.

Please note though that this part is no longer available from Saab, so I'm
afraid that you may have problems trying to source an alternative to this
part.

Regards
Paul Whiter"

So I'm looking for a master cylinder ..... Or will order the kit of gaskets .
