Default Re: I aquired another VW

Thank ya,

Today I hope to get another master cylinder put on it so I don't hafta stand on the brake pedal, I have disc brakes up front and I read that you need a larger bore cylinder because the calipers have larger pistons than wheel cylinders

So, I took the M/C that I had on my Rail Buggy and after rigging up a reservoir for it I hope to get it on so my leg can rest when pushing the brake pedal

Here is a picture of my fantastic rigging skills

It just so happened the hole that went thru the fitting that screws into the M/C and holds the plastic reservoir had a 7/16 inch hole in it (tap drill for a 1/4 NTP pipe thread), so I tapped it and used what I had on hand to make a reservoir until I can get to the VW parts place and buy a new plastic reservoir

I could even make my own out of aluminum, I'm purty sure I have a couple pieces large enough to turn a reservoir and a lid, gotta have a cap to match, then I'll just tap a 1/4 NTP (or is it NPT been so long I can't remember)

"Can't" is a word that means your to lazy to even try.
