I have a 1977 Airstream motor home based on a Chevy P 30 chassis with all four wheel disc barkes. I need a master cylinder gasket. Its not the same gasket or master cylinder typically used on a rear drum set up, Its much larger. the gasket has Bendix 2228633 stamped on it. It measures 6 inches long by 4 inches wide. Very large master cylinder fluid tanks. I can not find it at any big box auto parts stores. Does anyone here have one or a source ?

I have been considering a custom build OD transmission but, the availability of this unit is making me consider going this way.

Fireman and Airstream expert from southern Florida.
I noticed my Airstream Argosy motor coach seems to sway to much in the butt. Side to side sway as in a top heavy feel. I just installed new Air springs in the front and…Continue

I had an odd incident last night. I pulled my 1977 Airstream Argosy 454 / 496 GM powered coach out of storage. I ran it about 10 minutes before leaving and then drove about 25 miles and stopped for gas. I pumped about 22 gallons of regular gas into it. It sat maybe 20 more minutes running while I pumped the gas. Then, right after I pulled out, the motor shut down. I got it to restart and then as soon as I got through the intersection it shut down again. I could hit the key and it would…Continue
