TILTON 6000 Series Hydraulic Snap Ring


Category: SKU: MD-900-5100-43


TILTON 6000 Series Hydraulic Slave O-Ring

Snap ring (6000-Series HRB lines) used to retain braided hydraulic line into Tilton 6000-Series hydraulic release bearings.



Tilton master cylinders are engineered to provide optimum performance at a moderate
cost. The master cylinders are made of lightweight aluminum and have a black anodized
coating to prevent wear and corrosion. Tilton master cylinders set the standard for the
industry and are a direct replacement for master cylinders that have a 2.25″ spaced,
2-bolt mounting pattern.
The 76 Series master cylinders are specifically designed to be assembled with
 –4AN inlet fittings, hoses, and remote mount reservoirs.
The inlet port
is a 7/16-20 thread (–4AN) designed for a crush washer seal.


Installation Notes
• Mount the reservoirs above the calipers to prevent fluid bleed-back from the calipers
to the master cylinders.
• Make sure that all of the parts are clean before assembling.
• Inlet port thread is designed for 7/16”-20 fittings.
• Top outlet is extra deep to work with 3/8”-24 banjo bolts to long AN3 fittings.



Master Cylinder
1. Remove the dust plugs from the master cylinder inlet and outlet ports.
2. The inlet adapter is pre-installed into the master cylinder a Tilton. The inlet adapter is
designed for fittings with a 7/16” -20 thread. If the inlet adapter is removed and needs to
be re-installed, the proper torque into the master cylinder body is 25 lb-ft.
3. 76-Series master cylinders are shipped with an AN3 plug installed into the rear outlet
port. If routing of the brake lines out of rear ports is desired, remove the plug and install
it into the top outlet port (unless the port is being used for other purposes such as for pressure
sensor, brake light switch, etc)
4. Top outlet port is extra deep for use with 3/8” -24 banjo bolts or long AN3 fittings.

Direct Mount Reservoir

ModernDriveLine offers a direct mount reservoir (P/N 74-240) that is designed to mount to the
the master cylinder in place of the installed inlet adapter.
1. Remove the inlet adapter from the master cylinder.
2. Installed reservoir in place of the removed adapter and torque to 25 lb-ft.

Remote Reservoir

1. Install 7/16”- 20 fitting into the inlet port of the master cylinder.
2. Connect the inlet fitting to the remote reservoir using AN4 braided lines.

MDl Offers a remote mount reservoir for this application see these here.



Required Equipment
• Bleeder kit
• Proper wrenches
• An adequate supply of DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid
• If the vehicle has a dual master cylinder brake system then both of the
systems must be bled simultaneously. See ‘Bleeding Order‘ section for
proper order.


Priming Master Cylinder

1. Fill the master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid.
2. Slightly loosen the fitting at the master cylinder.
3. Gently depress and release the brake pedal until fluid emerges.
4. Tighten the fitting.
5. Select the bleeding order that fits your application from the Bleeding Order
Brake Bleeding
1. Fill a clear bottle with enough brake fluid to keep the hose-ends
fully submerged.
2. Attach the other end of the plastic bleeder hose to the caliper bleed screw.
3. Be sure the hoses stay submerged throughout the procedure to prevent
sucking air on the return stroke of the pedal.
4. Depress the brake pedal with slow and gentle foot pressure.
5. Open the caliper bleed screw.
6. Allow the pedal to drop to the fully depressed position.
7. Close the caliper bleed screw.
8. Allow the pedal to return to the relaxed position.
9. Wait several seconds and then repeat steps 4 through 8 until air has been
removed from the system.


The brake system should have the brake fluid replaced and the brake bleeding
procedure performed before each event.


Please contact Modern DriveLine for the appropriate rebuild kit.

Fixed calipers, 1 Master Cylinder
1. Start at the caliper furthest from the master cylinder. Bleed the inboard
side and then the outboard side.
2. Proceed to the next closest caliper.
Upon Completion
After bleeding, minimal brake pedal travel should be
observed. Properly bleeding the brakes does not require
any power equipment or a massive amount of applied
pedal force.
