    Cheers, I was wondering if it would be ok to turn the servo upside down, I guess it makes no difference to how it works.

    Here is a comparison of the original and Land Rover master cylinders fitted and the clearance issue is easy to see.

    I've relieved the edge of the reservoir as much as I can and have also fitted a couple of washers between the servo and the master cylinder to gain a bit of room. Am I right in thinking that the washers won't be a problem once the system is up to pressure and the servo rod is against the plunger in the master cylinder?

    Hi all, just after a bit of advice. A new master cylinder was fitted to my car last year (not by me) and I think it is a land Rover type but the reservoir clashed with the vacuum connector on the brake servo. Now I'm putting it back together I'm trying avoid having the same problem. Here is a photo of the original (dead) master cylinder and the new one, you can see why there is now a clearance issue.

    Hi all, after a 2 month wait I've just got my refurbished brake servo back. Not sure if I'll have time to get it fitted and bled this weekend but once I do I'll let you know how it performs! Hopefully it'll at least stop now :)
  8. Just picked up this new mag and there is an article on Savages in there, not read it yet but it might of interest to a few people on here :)
  9. Hi, I've always used (last 30 years) Saunders engineering in Cadnam and never been disappointed. Really helpful and knowledgeable place.

    New fuel ?

    At the moment Esso supreme has no ethanol at all (even though it says E5 on the pump), not sure if that will change but that is where I fill up my old cars and bikes. https://www.esso.co.uk/en-gb/fuels/petrol
