Just loosing it.

1979 sx11 special,

Have been trying to find GOOD picture - not some 70's drawing - ( I have 2 manuals ) of the way the 2 rubber piston sleeves are put on the REAR M/Cyl plunger . I find the end one next to the spring is cupped towards the spring > which way is the "center" one facing????? same way?????????????????????????


Thanks

search member TucmanXJ then scroll down to 1-12-08 post called Master cylinder rebuild he has a pic to orient what your asking. its a front master but should be the same. also if you soak the rubber seal in brake fluid about 10 mins it will be like a rubber band on install.

The center rear has the smallest diameter part of the seal facing the front of the piston. That is the front of the piston goes into the bore first. I have a scanned pdf of the brake system that allows you to enlarge. I did a high res scan, so you can see everything easily. If you want a copy, send me an email; ray(at)rjmatteis(dot)com with xs11 brake in the subject line.
