The MG Experience www. Master cylinder rebuild Posted by lukeiswho. Page 1 2 3. Master cylinder rebuild 1.
Quick question, After replacing the brake pads, rebuilding the wheel cylinders, and bleeding the brakes I realized a leak in the master cylinder.
It actually appears that its been there a while.
So my question is Master cylinder rebuild 2. Luke, Had the same MC on my '62 Sprite. Yes the rebuild kit should work if there are no deep score marks in the cylinder walls. Be sure to run hone through the cylinders and clean it well. When I bought my '62 the previous owner had taken the car to a local tire and brake shop with a rebuild kit twice and they only changed the outside rubber and cleaned up the puddle of fluid.
I could tell they never rebuilt the master cylinders because the factory paint on the tray bolts had not been broken. After a Moss kit had actually been installed it worked for several years until I sold the car.

Last edit at Master cylinder rebuild 3. Thanks Alan, time to place another order! I stuck my head under the wheel well and it appears mine has also been leaking for some time. Guess I better just get it done.
