Yes. The original didn't fit so I ordered a new one from Trevor. He tested it on a MC that he had in his shop before he shipped it. When I got it it didn't work in the new MC but it threaded right into the old MC. My TRW MC is was obviously made on a Monday after a three day weekend. At least my 90 isn't my only vehicle.

Wow, that's some bad luck. I'm sure Trevor will exchange it for you.

Were you able to do it without taking the wing off, and just unbolt the brake booster & move it over?

Yes. Unbolted the brake booster and after quite a bit of wiggling and twisting it came out.

Took out this morning a leaking Delphi off my truck, it was less than two years old. I'm trying TRW this time.

The one that came with the truck was a POS also, 2 years max.
I just noticed that the Delphi is no even rebuildable.

What fluid are you using? Did you replace the master and the flex hose as well? I thought the oem ones were girling.

I'm using Motul dot 4, it's the master I'm changing, hose and slave were changed on the last MC swap, they seem to be ok so far.

Heat shield is on, plus the brake cylinder is first in line and is ok, so I don't think it's a temperature issue, it's just crappy seals imo.

Okay, I thought it was Girling, but it might be TRW that I used, which is Lucas.

Okay. I braved the weather and looked at my truck and it is branded Girling on the master. I guess Lucas, TRW and Girling are all the same company.

My bet is that whatever the brand is, seals are alibaba stuff.
