MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Brake Master Cylinder (78 1500)

I'm posting this on behalf of a friend who hasn't yet made it over here yet.
"1978 midget single line brakes using GMC166 master cylinder is no longer available. Has anyone used GMC151 as a replacement. ?"

no - but GMC151 is pictured as an all-metal reservoir as it should be, but AFAIK they are actually supplied with a plastic reservoir like 166, just mounted straight onto the cylinder rather than on the remote bracket. Subbing 151 for 166 should not present any problems.

Thanks David, he's now got himself a 151 from the bhive.
