MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Brake Master Cylinder Replacement?
|After replacing the rear brake cylinders on a 75 midget along with the front calipers and bleeding several times, I have been unable to get rid of the last bit of air in the system.|
Next step was to either replace the seals in the master cylinder or purchase a new one. Moss now have the replacement tin can ones for
|does your early 1500 have the tandem dual-circuit m/cyl or the single line system carried over from the late 1275s?|
If the latter then it's a very easy job to replace the seal etc. If the former, they are a 'mare.
|It's the single line system, so hopefully straight forward?|
|replacing seals is easy. all you need is circlip pliers.|
the only problem that may arise is if the bore is scored. if so, its scrap.

|Yes, although actually removing the unit from the car to work on does require small spanners and fingers. After removing the clevis pin and setting the pushrod to one side use a 1/4" drive socket set from that side with a ring or OE to hold the bolt head on the cylinder side.|
|Thanks for the replies which are a great help.|
