I'm slowing going thru some old boxes in the shop and came across these calipers and master cylinder that I must have stashed away. Looks like everything requires a full rebuild but still might have some value as cores? Master cylinder is 2226821 casting number. Calipers appear to be a R and L. One has been cleaned up, the other is crusty. I looked on ebay and a guy with a rebuilt 2226821 was asking $600. Are they really going for that??

Andy I can not help with a value but I just had a master cylinder bored, a new sleeve installed , and rebuilt with a new kit and it ran me about 200.00 for that service plus shipping.

I had an NOS 2226821 master cylinder I sold last year for $350.
I would say a rebuilt would be worth around $250.
Are you missing the cap and bale wire? They can be found, but adds effort and cost to the project.
Maybe $75-100 value for the core?
The calipers are nice but I don't know the value. I bought some nice '70 E body caliper cores from a member here last year for $150 or maybe it was $200, I don't recall now, for the pair, so I would think B body would likely be in the same range pricewise.

Thanks, sounds about right. I don't need any of this stuff so I'll put it over on the B body parts for sale section and send it off to someone who can use it.

I was able to clean up the calipers and remove the bolts. The pistons are stuck in there pretty good, probably take a little bit of work to get them out.

I have adapted a diesel injector Pop tester to the halves of the old Kelsey Hayes 4 piston set ups. I use a C clamp and a block of wood to slowly work them out in pairs.

Yeah hydraulic pressure is the best way to remove them but some of these are rusted tight. Might need to mechanically remove them.

I had a request for some more pictures so here goes. View of the inside and of the driver side. There is an E stamped on the bottom of the casting and some sort of date code tag in the cast but hard to read. Might be 285 but could easily be something else altogether.

The 3 digit number cast into the bottom is a casting date code but I'm not completely sure how to decipher them.
The important date code is the assembly date code stamped in the left side of the casting. There would be 2 lines, the date code is the second line and is 4 numbers. For example "9 123" would be the 123rd day of '69. With the coat of paint and all on the yours, you might not be able to find it.
Early examples of these had the date code on a thin metal tag on the bale wire, I don't know when that changed, but '68 and maybe into early 69 had an assembly date code tag instead of stamped.
