Summary

Clark forklifts are some of the most long-lasting and efficient vehicles in the material handling sector. However, even these machines need proper care and maintenance to work at their best. This is especially true for Clark forklift brake master cylinders, as they play a major role in how well brakes respond. Because Clark forklift master cylinders are closely related to the safety of both the operator and the load, any Clark forklift owner must take action immediately if they notice any deterioration signs. That's why, at Lift Parts Warehouse, we're going to explore a little more about these devices and what elements you have to consider when you decide to purchase their replacements.

What is the Purpose of the Clark Forklift Master Cylinder?

Any Clark lift truck counts on a brake master cylinder that transforms the pressure on the brake pedal to hydraulic pressure by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit. The brake master cylinder is the first component in a Clark lift truck's braking system, activated by depressing the brake pedal. The pedal pushes a piston through this cylinder, forcing brake fluid through brake lines to brake wheel cylinders at each wheel, which in turn drives the pistons that force friction material against the wheel hubs, stopping the vehicle.

Generally, the main body of a Clark forklift master cylinder is made of aluminum or cast iron. Apart from the body, this device is made up of several elements, each of which fulfills a particular function. Below we will highlight the most important ones.

  • The brake fluid reservoir. As its name says, this tank contains the brake fluid used in the brake system circuit. It is made of durable materials that can withstand high temperatures and pressures.
  • Pushrod. This part is connected to the mechanism that communicates the brake pedal with the brake cylinder. When the brake pedal is depressed, the pushrod presses into the master cylinder, causing an increase in hydraulic pressure within the brake system.
  • The internal pistons are located in the center of the cylinder body and are connected to the spring.
  • The springs provide tension and pressure to the pistons, which helps to keep the brakes from locking up.
  • The bushings are located inside the cylinder body and help seal the pistons.
  • The reservoir cap is located at the top of the reservoir and helps keep the brake fluid from leaking.

Where is the Master Cylinder Located on a Clark Forklift?

Finding the master cylinder on Clark forklifts is an easy task. On most models, you can find this device under the driver's feet, but to do so, you must first remove the operator's floor panel. But remember that this will not necessarily be your case. It is best to first consult the user manual corresponding to the model of your Clark forklift. Once the driver's floor panel is removed, locate the brake pedal and try to follow its mechanism until you find the Clark Forklift master cylinder pressure rod connection.

The Most Common Bad Clark Forklift Master Cylinder Symptoms

If you pay attention, you will be able to notice the symptoms of a bad master cylinder

The Clark forklift's master cylinder is a control device that lets you manage the brake system on the Clark lifting vehicle. It's very rare for this device to deteriorate overnight, so you should be able to spot when your Clark forklift master cylinder starts to fail. Below we will highlight the most prominent symptoms.

  1. Unusual Brake Pedal Behavior: This is usually the most common symptom of master cylinder failure. If you press the brake pedal and it feels spongy or soft, it is a clear sign that the master cylinder is not providing enough pressure and is therefore failing.
  2. Leaking fluid under your Clark lift truck: This is a sign that there is a problem with the master cylinder. There may be problems with the seals or wear on the piston cylinders. In any case, you should take action as soon as possible before further deterioration is triggered.
  3. Brake fluid contamination: As a general rule, brake fluid tends to look fairly clean when it is in good condition. If the color of the brake fluid changes, it may indicate that the seals or elements of the master cylinder are deteriorating for some reason. When this happens, the brake pressure may not be as strong as it should be, and you will probably have to press harder on the pedal just to get the vehicle to slow down as usual.
  4. Brakes feel "grabby": If your Clark forklift brakes start to feel "grabby" or like they are engaging too early? It's another sign that the master cylinder is failing.

What Could Happen if You Decide to Drive Your Clark Forklift With a Faulty Master Cylinder

Clark forklifts need to be in good condition to work safely. If you use a Clark forklift with a defective brake master cylinder, you and those around you could be in danger. Forklifts are often used to move heavy loads from one place to another. Suppose a Clark forklift's brake system cannot respond adequately at all times. In that case, it can lead to an occupational accident that can end fatally depending on the variables involved.

You need to take care of risks when working with a Clark forklift. Make sure to check the brake system before starting any activity. If you see any of the symptoms mentioned early, take the forklift out of service until the problem is fixed.

Changing and Testing a Clark Forklift Master Cylinder

Replacing the master cylinder on your Clark forklift is not a difficult task. You just need the right tools and some patience. To replace your master cylinder, you may have to take off various panels, wires, and other components to gain access to it. So, as you remove items, don't forget where they go. Keep track of where each component goes, such as their clips and fasteners. You don't want to lose anything during the replacement task.
