Sorry I could not reply before, but I was out driving a coach all day yesterday and did not get home until 1.00 am this morning. I take on board what you have concluded and I have to say that has been my personal opinnion from day 1. Unfortunately I cannot find a supplier who has an 'O' ring kit.
Hi Mike, you must have thought I had emigrated, but no I am still here. Coach driving takes up a lot of my time this time of the year and the odd day out to keep the peace at home has to be endured as well. I tried all avenues to get either a new master cylinder assembly or an O ring kit but nobody had got either, the answer was always "no longer available". So the only option left was a second hand one, which I obtained on Friday by driving a 200 mile round trip. This was fitted on Friday afternoon and then came the next snag, to bleed the system.With a great deal of help from my boss and thecoach garage fitter, this was acheived this morning, so the car is back on the road.
Thanks for your help,
