i bolted on a 96 F250 master cylinder. you have to redo the hard lines, nothing major as the abs unit wont be needed anyway.

on a 96 F250 the bore is like 1.25"

ranger bore is .75? maybe idk what it is for sure


it is a direct bolt on besides the brake lines.

Just curious....I remember you telling me about this before(zach)....but got a question.

Can i run the fullsize cyl and keep full operation of my abs? I'm starting to think i need a new master here pretty soon....i'm doing the expo rear here soon too.

I dont see why not, you will jsut have to put a union on your current brake lines and extend them to go in the f250 mc.

the f250 mc the lines exit on the passenger side, on a ranger they exit on the drivers side.

make sure if you have cruise you get a f250 MC with cruise. Switch the cruise shutoff switch though, yours is newer and we all know the issues ford had with theirs.
