Well, actually, probably, and most likely yes. Oops, my bad. After
comparison with the bottom of my 92 Mustang's master cylinder I see that
the hole is probably where some kind of sensor goes--that's what's screwed
into the bottom of the 92 anyway. I didn't know they were using those that
far back--you learn something new every day.

It didn't make much sense to me either, but there were no instructions to
remove the plug--or an easy way to remove it as it was countersunk with no
slot for a screwdriver, etc. It didn't look like it was supposed to come out.

Things like this are not too good for my self esteem.

Just as a guess, older brake light switches work off hydraulic pressure and
are something like 1/8 NPT thread.

If your willing to do a mail order, Sacramento Vintage

a 97 catalog t shows a polished stainless set for
56-60 at $48.50 plus tax and shipping.
They have been around since 1969. Their number is
1-888-FORD-100 their open 9-6 M-f,9-3 SAT.
They do stock and hot rods.
They have catalog for 48-66 F1&F100 400+pages.

You need to press them off. If you don't have an arbor or hydraulic press ,
your local machine shop can help you.

Can't any good engine machine shop press these off? You can buy
whole rebuilt w/pumps for $50.00 or so, seems rebuild isn't even
worth messing with. "G"

You need to look at how you have those brakes hooked up. 1967-1972 power
disc master cylinders are all the same. Manual and power drum are not much
different. There is not supposed to be any plastic on these or any other
master cylinder where pressure is applied. Do you have both lines running
from the master cylinder? Is there a place for one of the lines to tie in on
the bottom of your master cyl? Do you have nine lives?

I had a sudden and total brake failure today. A plastic plug at the bottom
of the master cylinder (from a 72 Mustang, btw) blew out, taking all the
brake fluid with it. Luckily the truck was in the driveway at the
time. Does anybody know why the plug would blow out?
