MG TD TF 1500 - Leaking brake
|Rebuilt a brake plunger cup/cylinder... and it continued to leak. I assume I forgot to do something. Top to bottom; spring, white plunger, black plunger, metal piece (mask?)....ok so there was a rubber washer left, but I did not see a washer when I dismantlement..does the washer go in the cup?|
|IMHO- Moss has set of 6 wheel cylinders on sale for less than $100, so pointless to rebuild. The soft pot metal cylinders are usually scored and are rarely smooth enough to successfully rebuild. Especially with a single MC system, not a place to save $. George|
|George X2 - Not worth messing with. Cheers - Dave|
|Not of much help to you but here in Sydney original cylinders are re sleeved in stainless. This avoids problems that are often experienced with AM parts. Cheers|

|The only way to go Peter and that goes for the master cylinder as well.|
|I have a m/c that was sleeved many years ago in bronze. It is still clean as a whistle using DOT3.|
