hey guys,I have a 79 280zx, and im having a hard time finding a brake master cylinder for it. is there somewhere I may be able to find this part that somebody on the forums knows about and if not,is there a compatible master cylinder from another vehicle that can bolt on without major mods? Ive tried my local autozones and oreillys to no avail and I dont want to spend $329 and two weeks waiting for the part to come in from the dealership.thanks for the help.

I used autopartswarehouse.com to get a good replacement for my clutch master cylinder made by PBR, which had a great price. I see they have several brands available for yours, looks like around $140, but those are with a shared reservoir (not separate like Nissan made it). Just depends on what you prefer.

www.rockauto.com has one in stock for $155? And they'll rebuild yours for $30, turnaround is about a week?

You can also buy rebuild kits for $20~ and rebuild it yourself?
