  1. The hexagonal bit did unscrew, that released the first piston. Second piston needed a bit of help to come out... I tapped the flange that attaches to the bulkhead on the vice until it appeared. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  2. Master cylinder apart, rebuild kit arrived. Apart from cleaning everything meticulously do I touch the bore to polish/hone etc? It's not really rusty but it isn't bright shiny metal either. Any lessons from past experience? Thanks Andy Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  3. Good point, I was going to wait until I had got it apart before ordering the kit.... There seen to be lots of variations, so I was going to measure the bore as a starting point. Might even be 8n the workshop manual which I don't have... Yet. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  4. I'll try that next. I'll also get a price for a new master cylinder! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  5. Try as I might, the jiggle pin won't come out. Any ideas? Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  6. I tried to include the numbers on the reservoir and the plastic tag in case that helps. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  7. Removed the reservoir, tiny circlip, plastic collar, conical spring. This leave a pin. The pin seems connected inside and won't come out. Do I unscrew the part with the pin in it? Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks dt. It's a double with the plastic reservoir. I'll give that method a go and post a pic. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  9. Hi, no brake pedal on my 1976 1.3L. Master cylinder off, circlip off, how do I get the piston out? Once out I plan to clean up and put a seal kit in it. There seem to be lots of versions of master cylinder, anyone reccommend a good supplier? Thanks Andy Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks for all the ideas guys. I like the idea of wrapping it, at least it will get the rust sorted, and on the road in time for a tax free year from next April! I can't really afford to put it into a garage and have £4000 of work done on it, as much as I'd like to! Will the wrap stick to primer OK? Is hand painted red oxide going to seal the metal OK? Various reports on other forums. I know the zinc 182 isn't all that as the sills have surface rust back after a clean up and two coats of zinc 182! Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  11. Sorry for all the questions..... But it's good to get feedback and different ideas... It's helping to get my enthusiasm going. Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  12. My crossbow runs pretty well, but isn't unleaded..... And the accelerator pump is u/'s. Apart from that it's OK I think. Is an unleaded head expensive? Would it be much extra to get a gas flowed head.... Or should I just keep it standard..... Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  13. So, to wrap it.... I'd have to sort the rust to a certain extent wouldn't I..... I've got an angle grinder and a selection of cup wire wheels.... So getting it cleaned up isn't a problem, but once I've got metal, skim fill it and paint it with red oxide? Will that protect it enough? Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
  14. I would like to keep it. I have sold too many cars over the years then regretted it later, but you can't keep them all.... I think I'll clean it up and wax it, or Ankor it, then work out what it needs for an mot. If I can get that then I can drive it, once I can drive it hopefully the rest will follow... I like the idea of keeping it original. OK, I changed the wheels and exhaust when I got it but they swap back easily enough. I had a guy interested who said he would put a 2 litre in it and recaros etc..... That would be a shame. We all did that back in the 80s but there were so many it didn't matter.

  15. No worries Glenn.... I had to install tap talk.... Struggling to begin with.... Sent from my MotoG3 using Tapatalk
