Brake pedal

Postby Rocketray » Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:10 pm

Sorry to be a pain after answers to my previous post I got a pedal but on going back after about 2 hours to move the car the pedal has lost pressure again on looking on Google it states it could be the master cylinder but this is new and I have been all around the system and can't find any loose connections or leaks if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

Re. Copper washers , if you've bought the mixed box of " copper washers" , just try a magnet against them,a box I bought at an auto-jumble proved to be magnetic....copper is not magnetic , those damn sneaky eastern gentlemen were selling copper plated steel washers as copper...

No wonder I couldn't get a good seal...
