I am currently in discussion with a supplier with a view to offering fully refurbished original ATE brake master cylinders for the 2.8i. These are not simply stripped down and re sealed, they will have complete new bores and pistons and all new seals. Before I go ahead I would like to gauge what interest, if any there would be. I am hoping to have an idea of price by early next week.
Hi Martin, It's terrific that you are in negotiation to offer refurbished 2.8 master cylinders, and I hope that you are able to pull it off. I would only be interested as an outright sale, just to keep on the shelf as a spare for the future. Depending on the price, of course.
Andrew As I can't get the cars anymore then the parts have to be refurbished or reproduced. I'm not about to get into the hole for a large amount of money or invest a lot of time in these things as previous experience has taught me that although at the time interest appears to be there it soon disappears. An outright purchase isn't a problem but I would assume that you'd lose any surcharge that would be due back. I will clarify all of this once I've finalised prices etc.
