NOT A T5,
since most of the master cylinder caps have had multiple replacements over the years, I'll keep it simple and list the Production installed cap and any replacement numbers.
If a drum brake car: C7AZ-2162-A replaced by D5TZ-2162-A
Disc brake: C9AZ-2162-A replaced by D3ZZ-2162-A
Bendix was the OE supplier to Ford so if you need one now, it should be an easy find at your local Parts Store. If looking for a period correct replacement I would start with Don @ Ohio Mustang Supply.

If its for drum brakes, I will have one off my 71 soon. I am switching to power disc. You can have it if you want it.

Thanks Y'all. Do you have a picture of it just to see what it looks like? I do have factory disc brakes and so 30 years ago replaced the cap with a chrome version. If I can find a period correct cap I'll have it chromed anyway.

NOT A T5,
I'm trying my best to help you spend some of your $$.   Lol
About four years ago Mustang Monthly had an article on identifying Brake master cylinder caps. The first photo is the C9AZ-2162-A. The second and third is the replacing D3ZZ-2162-A with the raised lettering and the indented style. Other than the style of lettering the way the cap is vented was the only difference.
Don has a chrome repo cap that may keep you from buying a cap and then going through the trouble of chroming it Might be worthwhile to contact him to see it it's the one you need. http://www.ohiomustang.com/store/order_p...itemid=282

Thanks secluff, the reason I'll have mine chromed is that those repro lids chrome quality isn't all that great. I have had a repro cap on mine for a long time and it's time for it to go.
