    Unhappy help!! need help finding decent clutch master UNDER $100!

    PLEASE i need someone to help me out with purchasing a new clutch master for my 99 Z28. EVERYONE literally simply says buy the $325 tick master..UNFORTUNATLY THATS A WEEKS PAYCHECK FOR ME. that being said, does anyone have any advice on what clutch MC i can buy for around 75 bucks that wont be complete dogshit. the car has 115k miles with a R.S. gear tranzilla rebuilt t56, new slave, and the clutch is OK. i know the master needs to be replaced simply because, well...its the original and car doesnt want to shift or go into first or reverse.
    anyways, I see on Rockauto.com they got 4 master cylinders, Wagner, Sachs, Acdelco, and Dorman. I WISH i could afford a Tick but its like $325-$60 nothing in between. i dont really need an adjustable but if anyone has any idea who makes a decent adjustable MC for 150ish i would buy it...although i would simply like advice on who makes a decent stock type replacement master cylinder.
    I would buy the Tick but if i did, total cost of purchasing it, AND installation would equal nearly $500. Its gonna cost me around 140 bucks just to have the new MC installed...
    any advice would be greatly appreciated...
    i was told the LS7 master was good but was not told if it will fit a Fbod.

    gm parts direct has the Master Cylinder for $143 + ship/handling (usually $15)

    gmpartsdirect.com

    Part # is 12570277



    It's a little more then the parts stores but you get a complete master kit (hydraulic hose, reservoir, cap & fluid pre-bled)

    The hydralic hose no unless it leaks, but for $50 more you get it complete and preloaded with fluid. Makes bleeding a hell of a lot easier.

    I gotone form O'Reilly with no fluid and it was a bitch to bleed. The second time I replaced it I got the one I posted and took 3 pumps. I also had to get the complete assembly because I made the mistake of letting a shop bleed it for me. It ended up costing them $650 because the morons used atf not dot III like the cap states.

    thanks for helping. im also having a shop do the work, this shop installed a new tranny for me too..so i figure i might as well them do the CMC, so for around $165 i can get a stock GM master cylinder? they can get one $200 complete..and plus if i EVER have any problems with the master cylinder they will warranty it so...i think im gonna go with the stock gm one. is there a diffence in the years for stock master cylinders? ive got a 1999 and ive heard the 01-02 design is better?
