23mm Master Cylinder from ??

If I want to convert an '87 Carrera or an '86 930 to a 23mm master cylinder as part of a caliper upgrade, what am I actually looking for?
Will parts from another model do the job or are the 23mm m/cylinders an after-market part?
Let me know if you've got what I need.

Hi Bill,

The 23mm master cylinder you will need is an OEM Porsche part.They were stock on the 930 Turbo and you can pick them up from Pelican and other parts vendors.
I will have to install one as well due to the 996TT brake upgrade i'm performing on my car.
An 86 930 already has the 23mm master cylinder !

By the way,you will also need one with the Boxster conversion,although some people seem to think you can get away with the stock one ...

Cheers !
Phil

Thanks Phil. Useful info.

Can someone confirm that the 23mm cylinder bolts up in place of the original Carrera part without any other mods?

it does - may need to switch out the brake light switches (2) to 2 pole from three - otherwise it bolts right up

There is a Mercedes 23mm master cylinder that works just fine, and is supposedly cheaper than the Porsche part.

the part that is needed for a 911 w/ power brakes is the ATE 23.8mm oe 930 m/c from a '78-89 930, part# 930.355.011.03

the ATE 23.8mm that was also used on a Mercedes truck is only used for 911 w/o power brakes. This one does not have Porsche part #. ATE (ports face left) # 03-2123-3402.3. There is also a right port version. It's best to buy this in a kit w/ the correct actuating rod and bent feed adaptors

The 3.2/930 vacuum boosters are also 8" instead of 7" (as used on the SC), and were available in a couple of different ratios as well.

According to Bill V's brake page... Brakes

That page also states that the 930 (a) used a prop valve and (b) used two different types (33 bar and 55 bar). Interesting...

As an alternative, use a 22.4mm MC for a VW Corrado. Andy ("Hassad") ended up using this unit due to insufficient room to house the 23mm MB unit. Fluid delivery should be just a little less than the slightly larger MB unit. In addition, pedal force will also be slightly less.

Bigger master cylinder problems - Pelican Parts Technical BBS

In a follow-up correspondence, Andy responded:
"It worked out just fine thanks. I had to sleeve some remote reservoir connection tails with tight fitting grommets to allow them to connect to the cylinder. I blanked one rear wheel output in the VW part with a 10mm blank. Each front wheel is fed separately. The rears are on a single line through an adjustable pressure limiter. I have fitted a hydraulic pressure switch for the brake lights it then tee's off to feed both rears as standard. I haven't driven it yet but don't anticipate any problems.

It all fitted really easily the pedal stroke is fine but a little higher than standard , I had to modify the stop on the pedal box but real simple."


FWIW,
Sherwood

That's an old page wich hasn't been maintained and is full of typos.

here is the updated brake info

930s don't use any p/v

Thanks for all the great info, especially pmason's shopping list and the link to Bill's brake details.
The only thing missing is part numbers of rotors and calipers.
I had started to do something similar for the various cars and brakes that I have, but my effort pales to insignificance compared to Bill's list.

Arrived late for comments - but I can supply some eye candy for the weekend project:



I opted to buy a new Reservoir 911-355-013-13-M100 as well for the SC I installed this in.

billjam, received my parts today and just finished putting it all in, need to bleed the brakes yet but everything else is done.
Just a note on my shopping list, the MC came with the 2 grommets.
911-355-922-00-M4 Master Cylinder Reservoir Grommet (sold per each, 2 req.), 911/911
Turbo (1977-89), Brand: Ate
But it was cheap insurance if it didn't, would of been kicking myself.

1976 911s 19mm to 23mm M/C upgrade help needed

Hi all, First restoration so please go easy. I have 00-04 boxster calipers on all four corners, and Zimmerman cross drilled Carrera rotors, and Textar pads.

I have been looking for some instructions or parts diagrams for the ATE 23mm master cylinder conversion on a non boosted 911 and have came up empty, or at least a little vague at my skill level.

I wanting advice on if the below and pictured will work.

The old pic with red labels is of my now removed 19mm M/C:
A) was a T hard brake line connection to the front brakes. B) was the rear hard brake line C) was the brake light single pole switch. D) reservoir in and out ports.


The (bottom) pic of the new labeled M/C 23MM is the best configuration i have come up with. ATE shipped it originally with two -three pole brake light switches and plugs where the reservoir gaskets go(middle pic pulled from web). I received none of that. SO. I am thinking the following:
A) front brake like in the original t configuration using the T B) hard brake line to rear brakes C) two pole brake light switch??? (is this necessary to have this switch, the old single pole doesn't fit, (should i adapt the size to fit the old single pole or use a jumper the new two pole, i am at a loss.) then D) plug this hole as i pictured where the second switch would go.

Thanks in advance.

here's what a typical non boosted 23.8mm ATE looks like when installed in a '76 or earlier 911



When purchased as a kit you get the angled fill fitting, fill hole and a correct length actuating rod

Thanks Bill. On the picture you sent I do not see the brake light sensor Is than not needed? Second, I see that three of the ports are running hard lines to brakes, and only one reservoir port is being used is this correct? I feel like your provided photo only has one less threaded port than the pic I provided. Mine has two threaded ports near the firewall.
I really appreciate the help.
