Looks good.  What are the runners? 

Any more info on the modelling filler or its application and finish?

Hi David
the runners on the sledges are from uPVC window frames. have tried a couple of local engineering firms but they are a bit too large scale to take on resleeving the brake cylinder will try one more tomorrow. the stuff Don used is White Milliput ( a modelling epoxy) . might be a last resort.

Google gave me these three - but not the one I had half a memory of...  I thought this had been a discussion point on the forum but was unable to find the thread.  I can't right now but will try and search in my email archive for "the recommendation" I'd had.

I have not used White Milliput in a brake system, but can confirm that it is superb for repairing a petrol tank. Clean everything up, apply, let it cure then smother with underseal. It will romp through an MOT !!!!!!

Needless to say, it was on recommendation from Don !!!

Good luck with whatever route you choose. Of course, I (and I am sure many others) would like you to try the Milliput, so that its efficacy in a brake system may be proved, or otherwise!!!!

Hi Andy
the word on the Milliput is it has lasted 20 years in Don's series 1 master cylinder with no problems!! it must be good stuff... Thanks for those links David the guys in Norfolk look useful might give them a try

I've used white Milliput in modelling. Get the mix right (easy enough by rolling balls of the same size) and it dries absolutely rock hard, so I can believe it's capacity for fixing tank leaks etc. Never known it to crack or shrink. I think it's advertised as being able to be tapped etc. Even if the mix is slightly wrong it will still harden but just take longer.

Braved the cold, penguins and polar bears to get the oil tank thingy back on, looking good.... my endurance with longjohns, overalls ,scarf and woolly hat is about 2 hrs then I have to scarper off home to thaw out. seems the cup at the bottom of the plunger was stopping the triangular valve from doing it's stuff so a bit of adjustment and it is all back together, will check it tomorrow to see if it has maintained the pressure.still a mystery why it stopped working ..be me being cack handed

Drivers side back on and bled...still got pressure and the plunger up on oil tank..risked a push of the brake pedal seems to be some resistance and sounds of brake shoes moving? have them slackened right off so the travel is understandable.. will check tomorrow for leaks
