Hi

Do you know of a bigger brake plug and play master cylinder for boxer Alfas?

Thanks

Apparently the 164 and 75 master cylinders are plug and play. Hope that helps :)

I put an Alfa 75 master cylinder into my series 2, 1.7 33 last year. Fitted straight in, no problems...

Cheers

It is just a slightly wider unit to accomodate a bigger bore. Fits in the same place on the same bolts. Only tricky bit is getting the reservoir off. Need to be a bit careful there... Otherwise a straightforward job.

It is not a straight forward fit.
It almost...
You have to change one of the brake lines, the one that is below, but it is simple.
I put it on the 33 and because I didn´t have anyone to help me, I couldn´t bleed the circuit.
But even I didn´t bleed the circuit, I went to test the car and it started to brake, and brake, and brake...
Today´s morning its braking very well.
Better than before...
Latter I will bleed the brakes.
