Just an update on the master cylinder replacement nightmare i have been having.
It would appear that the new issue of Brake master cylinders come with a 12mm banjo Bolt outlet this has a 1.5mm thread pitch. Dont know if any one has found one but you cant get a 12mm Banjo which will go onto a standard brake pipe.
This means that the original banjos and bolts do not fit. The manufacturers are convinced their tooling is right
Ok continue on then.
I have now a collecion of about 50 Banjos from most Alfas beleive me their tooling is wrong! Heh Ho.
I have discoverd a company
