I have a leaking master brake cylinder on my 71 XJ6. After reviewing the cost of a new one, a rebuilt one and a new parts only, my plan is as follows.
I purchased a rebuild kit from XK Unlimited and will go through that process. If that is not successful, I will have it rebuilt including sleeving. I assume that will work, but if not, new units are available.
I am a complete novice when it comes to brake cylinders. Although the instructions in the factory manual are clear, I would appreciate any comments from Listers who have done this before. I have hopefully attached a photo of the repair parts provided in the repair kit and the manual exploded diagram. The numbers in red on the photo of the repair parts coincide with the numbered parts in the factory manual. One odd item is the two machine screws which are different diameters and different threads. I assume the reason for that will be clear once I disassemble the unit.
