Hopefully the picture works okay. But it's the bottom part of this picture. This should be at the bottom of the cylinder

Re: Master cylinder

Just had to check if had a 2.8 servo and I do. There's plenty on eBay but some cost a fortune which I'm sure they don't need to be. Just wondering if someone had any spare parts. Weber's need setting up end of next week so hopefully someone might have the bits I need in time. Thanks everyone for you...

Re: Master cylinder

Thanks for the reply. I assumed that a bigger bore meant a stronger braking capacity. It's the second set of seals and spring at the bottom of the cylinder. Some of the metal has corroded away, the seals are fine.

master cylinder

Anybody know where I can find the internals of a master cylinder? I have upgraded mine to 2.8i (22.2mm) bore but when on inspection the metal parts inside are damaged.

Ignition coil plug?!

Anybody know where I can buy the 2 leads which push on to the positive and negative on the ignition coil???

I can use ring terminals but they don't look as good as the old school method.

Re: Humming noise (REAR)

Well it shouldn't be the bearing then. The only other part at the rear that would make a humming noise is the fuel pump or maybe a speaker has blown but I wouldn't of thought it would make a hum noise. Only if your listening to white noise then maybe but I don't think that's anyone's cup of tea. Hop...

Re: Humming noise (REAR)

Usually a humming noise is the wheel bearing on its way out. Can check by jacking up the car at the rear and see if there's movement by pressing or pulling the tyre walls. Facing the wheel have both hands on either side of the tyre and press or pull in opposite directions. Compare with the other sid...

Re: Radio wiring

Yellow is switched

Red is permanent there should be an inline fuse not far from the radio.

Don't think I have ever seen a blue wire going to the radio. Must be the earth!?!?

Re: Mk2/3 Parcel Shelf

My 1986 2.0 laser came with carpet on the parcel shelf. As far as I know the car came original like that.

Not sure about any markings though

Re: Handbrake Switch

Thanks for the reply. You were correct with the wire colour and how many. I checked the lamp and that was fine but on further inspection I found the tabs to connect the instrument cluster to the lamp were squashed and not completing the circuit. Tested both handbrake and brake reservoir and all is g...

Also added in a temperature sensor switch from maplins which is dead easy to wire up. Just mounted the unit to the alloy pla...
