Default F350 brake booster,m/c and wheel cylinder

Booba, did I understand from a previous post I was reading this weekend that you put the wheel cylinders on before the booster and mc? Also, did you buy Ford or after market. If after market, which brand and what store. I'd hate to see what Ford wants for them. My last post I stated I will redo my brakes in a few weeks. I have slotted and drilled rotors, russel briaded brake lines, Timken bearings (Autozone and made in the USA!) and seals for rotors, brake switch (mine is on frame),rear brake shoes and I need to get frt pads. I think I'm going with EBC ceramic. I hate the brake dust from the cheapies. My rear brake shoes are wagner and when I saw they where made in china, I was pissed. Still have receipt so if there is a better brand to get I'll go get my money back. Thanks. Frank

For brake shoes, I used Duralast shoes, they were all I could get at the time, but have actually served me well so far (2 years). For the Booster, I went with a Cardone, which mechanically works fine, but it began to rust less than a year after I bought it. I pulled it, masked everything off, sanded it, painted it with rustoleum and so far so good. I'm not 100% sure, but I think I went with BrakeBest on the Master cylinder. When this all happened, my master cylinder and booster has gone OUT and one of my rear cylinders were leaking, so it wasn't something I had planned, everything was replaced in one night(along with a transmission flush, oil change, antifreeze flush, rear-end flush, repacked bearings, etc...it was a long night). I figured that I might as well put something from the next model truck up, and it worked out great. On the wheel cylinders, the F350 came with 2 sizes, and I choose the larger size. The larger size is for the dually F350, but it bolts on the same.

It's been about 2 years since I did all the work, and I have put the truck through quite a bit of abuse (hauling\towing not offroading...much), and it still stops GREAT. I haven't had the front wheels off in a little while (I need to soon), but I had the drums off when I did 4-clutch mod on my rear end, and everything looked brand new.

Thanks Booba. If you don't mind me asking, what is the price on the boost and mc. Is it going to hurt to go ahead and put wheel cylinders on befor the other?

I'm not sure on the rear wheel cylinders, only because they are a bigger bore, which will need more pressure to move them. The stock booster\Master cylinder might not be able to provide that pressure. It'll work, but I doubt you'll notice an improvement...now once you install the whole kit and kaboodle (F350 Booster and Master cylinder), that'll be a different story. My truck stop on a DIME, even with a 16 foot cattle trailer with no trailer brakes and 1 seized wheel bearing.

These links are for a 1989 (my year), so when you goto buy them make sure you tell them its for your year, just an F350.

Booster:

Master Cylinder:

Have you seen the write up I did on the booster\master cylinder install? sounds like you have, but I wanna make sure. Link is in my signature.

Did they take your 150 parts for core charges?

They sure did. Without having the 2 master cylinders sitting side by side you wouldn't be able to tell the difference (just a bigger bore), but the booster is pretty obvious, the F350 booster is 2-3 times as thick. They took it as a core with no questions asked.

I did read it last week and I made a comment on it in one of my other posts. I also have to make sure the m/c is early 93. My brake switch is down on frame and is not mounted on the m/c. I will ck them out Russo. I hate to change subjects because it might be better for others if I started new post. It will be on the MarkVIII elec fan. I think thats what I'm going to do. Thanks a lot guys. Frank

If you are going the hydroboost route, you will need to do a saginaw power steering pump swap. Very simple to do, but you will need it for hydroboost.
