MG MGB Technical - Brake pipe length 62 MGB LHD
|Can someone please measure for me the length of the brake pipe from the master cylinder to the four way union. Car is pull handle Roadster left hand drive. |
I have been delivered a RHD kit and will get the pipe made up locally before I attack the car to replace the old pipes. It's roadworthy now, and the owner only wants it out of commission for a few hours when I do the brake lines.
|When I ordered my brake set, I was sent a RHD brake pipe set. However, they included the pipe which ran to the optional servo which replaced the MC pipe to junction perfectly. RAY|
|Don't see how that would work - in the kit I have the MC to 4-way and MC to Servo lines are the same length.|
Anyone else able to measure a line for me - I guess it will be the same on any LHD model within an inch or so.
|I can do this tonight when I get home. I have a '63 B fully dissasembled so I just need to find the pipe and measure. Please drop me an email reminder and I will reply with the measurements.|

Thanks. I'd happily drop you a mail, but there's no email address on your post....
just measured it on my 1964 MGB using a shoe lace and ruler: 123cm. Hope this helps (no servo, just master cylinder, pull handle, left hand drive)
|oops...I will change my profile to show my email address in the future.|
