Default Wilwood recall

I just found out my Wilwood master cylinder is part of the recall group. Scary that it could have failed crossing the stripe at 130 mph at the drag strip!! Dang! The recall affects only the 7/8" bore. Here is the link to the recall.

Kudos for notifying you and initiating a recall. Not quite as bad as loosing your pitman arm at the same speed.

Thanks for the heads up. I have a Wilwood MC, but not sure of the bore. Mounted but not used. Purchased 7 years ago. I'll read the recall notice and checkout my unit.

I bet Wilwood acted much faster too.

CPP could learn something from Wilwood. But they won't. I have a 15/16" Wilwood MC...good to go for now, but will keep an eye on it!

Probably not going to be too many people affected, since 7/8" bore is mostly used without a booster. Unfortunately, I've got 2 with 7/8" bores, I'll have to check the dates on the newer one, the older one has to be in the recall.

Thanks for the heads up.

I have one w/ a 7/8 bore. No booster and discs front and rear. My pedal is a bit soft and I'm thinking I should have used 15/16ths.
Have you encountered the same thing?
