master cylinder

  1. Items Wanted - AUTO
    Hey, As the title suggests I am looking for an entire rhd pedal assembly for an oval or early bug (if the parts are the same as the oval ones). It's the brake pedal and master cyljnder linkage I am really after. If you can recommend a source that would be great too and ill gove them a ring. Cheers

    Just bought a new MC from Heritage for my late bay, the distance between the reservoir ports is larger than the old one. From 85mm to 100mm. Does anyone know where you can get a MC reservoir from that has 100mm distance between outlets?
