Doesn't matter what you get as long as it has same bore diameter at your current one. If you run fresh fluid through your system every few years it should last forever.

Or use a land rover master cylinder, you just need to mount it at the front and fashion your brake lever so it rocks toward the plunger and extend your brake line....job done.

I to use this type due to the fact that you can tuck away the reservoir anywhere you want too.This one is from a Harley FX and used ones are fairly inexpensive...thanks,Junker
