Ke70 Pajero Master Cylinder Upgrade.

Recommended Posts

This is ONE way of doing it, and as usual its quick, cheap and easy.

 

Needed:

 

NE/NF/NG Pajero master cylinder.

Old Mazda master cylinder banjo fittings. The short one was from a 626 and the longer ones were from a 121 (I think), both FWD.

I used the longer of the three. I ripped them off one in a wrecker for nothing, remember to keep the washers.

So rip out the old KE70 master, as you can see the outlets are in completely different configurations.

Bolt the Pajero one in. Here you will see the issue with the brake lines in relation to the outlets. Yes you could make up new brake lines. Looking at the gap between the master rear outlet and the 4AGE plenum it looks like it would be a tight fit possibly meaning the plenum would hit the brake line.

 

Front line

Rear line

This is where the banjo joints come in, I used the shorter one on the rear brake line and the longer one the front brake line. For some reason the bolt hole for the front line is shallower than the other so I needed to use an extra washer.

Total time to install about 20 minutes.

Total cost around $80

 

EDIT: don't know why the images are all over the place :/

is this only needed if the brakes are upgraded or would this be a brake upgrade in it's self for just the stock ke70 brake?

 

looks neat, tidys up the old super long and ugly master cylinder

From what I've read it will be but I like that, makes toe heel easier. I may need to purchase a brake bias adjuster for the rear but will wait and see how the balance feels. Or upgrade to discs on the rear.

Did you need the brake bias adjuster for the rear?

I take it they're Xt130 Corona?

I'm running Xt130 strut based coilovers with modified caliper bracket to take bigger MA61 vented hubs and brakes.

I am keen to hear reports.

Just a bump to say I've been running this set up for months now. Pedal feels stock, plenty of anchors when needed.

A truly awesome cheap upgrade.

Just checking is that $80 for just the master cylinder or would that be including the banjo fittings as well if bought from the wreckers?
