Places like that excite me. There are not too many around anymore. We can't save them all but we can sure try.

General Discussion / Where to have master and calipers rebuilt?
« Last post by dannystarr on July 25, 2015, 12:17:54 AM »
I am finally reading to send in some parts for rebuilding. I have read many responses to this question over the last couple years. I want to have my Master Cylinder and Calipers rebuilt. Light cleaning and inside gut rebuild ONLY. No exterior finish work. Just like when I did my distributor and alternator. I have seen many good and bad revues of "White Post" online. A lot of people saying the employee's have changed, people have passed away over the years, new people in charge and nobody takes the pride any more in their work. And that they just pump them out now and stay busy because of the name.
 Lonestar does not rebuild with brass interior parts, and I don't know if I want stainless....DO I?

 I would like a company in or near California that has a good rep. Anybody know of a place?

 I would consider shipping anywhere in the US.. IF I can get a good company to do the work. That has CRG and TC members approval.
 Thanx... Danny

Depends on what's in it. My former '69 Z/28-RS had a real DZ engine not dated to the car, sold it years ago. It hammered at Russo-Steele 2012 for $50,000. I happened to be there and a couple of bidders passed when they learned it was NOM. But still did ok all things considered.

If you don't have the OE engine find one dated for the car and I think you will be ok. Anything else like an LT1 or some crate engine will hurt both value and salability.

Anyone know what the approximate price range for a 69 Z non matching numbers car is today? Thanks

 I wold definitely look at the power valve hanging in the bore thereby leaving the metering rods hung upward. The power valve should be closed at idle (vacuum pulls it down against a spring)and keeps the meeting rods down within the main metering jets at idle. You can try to "feel" the power valve by inserting a small rod or light weight screwdriver down the vent and feel for a faint spring loaded up/down motion of the valve with the motor off. Sometimes the valve will hang up in the bore.
 I found this picture on the web that shows it.

Here's another picture of the top. The first picture I posted made it look like there was some rust on the top. That isn't the case. Just a crappy picture.  :D
