MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Brake Master cylinder
|Is there any way other than destruction to remove the nylon bush from the dual line master cylinder? |
Alternatively... if the washer is NOT underneath it on re-assembly is that a huge problem..? (Don't ask...)
|If there is, I didn't find it. I ended up drilling holes in it and removing in four pieces.|

|Bummer - guess it's another new seal kit then...|
|there is whats called a spiral washer....you have to use a jewlers screw driver...or a eye glass screw driver and catch the lip of the washer, then you wind the screw driver around and the spiral washer will just "sprial" off ( thus the name ) with the tip of the screw driver....when removed it sorta looks like a slinky toy|
if the washer is NOT underneath it on re-assembly is that a huge problem..? (Don't ask...)
The short answer....Absolutly!!!
Truthfully I ddont know, but this is such a serious part, that influences life, death and expensive repairs if screwed up...I cant advise taking short cuts, and jerry rigging with a master clyinder...carb needles, aftermarket gauges, rusted floor pans ...sure, But MC thats just to risky even with vagas odds...If lucas intended for a washer to be present, id make sure the washer is there as designed.
Prop....I jerry rig just about everything
|Thanks - I suspected that there was no way out but honesty, so will bite the bullet and redo it...|
