Master Cylinder


The brake master Cylinder acts like a hydraulic pump that is attached to the pedal. It moves and detaches the brake fluid to the caliper and brakes drums for mechanical work. The brake master contains two separate systems that usually work over across in case of Cylinder acts like a hydraulic pump that is attached to the pedal. It moves and detaches the brake fluid to the caliper and brakes drums for mechanical work. The brake master contains two separate systems that usually work over across in case of failure.

Master Cylinder converts force (usually from a driver's foot) into hydraulic pressure. This device controls slave cylinders at the other end of the hydraulic system. When foot pressure is applied to a piston, hydraulic pressure is created to push fluid through lines and wheel cylinders to force brake pads against discs. By pressing the brake pedal, mechanical power is converted into hydraulic power, which slows or stops the vehicle. The brake master cylinder is located in the engine bay near the brake fluid reservoir. The brake fluid reservoir is mounted right above the master cylinder and stores the fluid untilCylinder converts force (usually from a driver's foot) into hydraulic pressure.
