MG MGB Technical - lockeed brake master cly

Hi All
I got this lockeed master cylinder to repair, i manage to get the circlip out of the main shaft, but the nylon seal seems stuck i cannot get it out, iam not familier with this type of pump, is there any way of getting it ou without removing the side nuts? they are to tight...
see picture here..
thanks
Alf

It's probably similar to the dual-circuit midget cylinder.

I drilled some holes in the nylon spacer and took it out in several pieces.

There is another circlip underneath.

I think there might be a (John Twist) University Motors YouTube video on this or similar (I think, maybe, but not 100% sure)

Lyndsay Porter describes using a hammer and ice-pick to smash it into a thousand pieces.

Hi
I got it right, had to drill the nylon out then remove a circlip the whole piston come out..,i suppose the nylon washer doesnt get out due to the pressure made of the outer spring to it...what a job...
thanks
