  1. Hello all, so my next issue is a crack in the plastic part of the master cylinder . (Reservoir?)
    I drove the bus around the block and noticed I have a tad spot of fluid coming from the crack .
    Can you just change the plastic part on a master cylinder?
    (Bus info)
    It’s a 73 late bay t2 no servo set up discs on front !
    Also where would be the best place to purchase one?
    Has anyone had similar ?
    Many thanks-) Jim
  2. Is it the one under the seat or the one on top of the master cylinder?

  5. It’s under the left off the drivers seat r/h drive . I’m the pocket thingy .
  6. Would this cause any issue to braking ability if it’s leaking?
    Also are they just a push fit? Not had a proper look yet !
  7. Only if you're fluid is low.
    Yes push fit.

  8. No, because the main reservoir is under the floor on top of the master cylinder. The upper one is easily replaced.
