Hi Chris,

I never had the need to touch the limiter valve on my GTE although I do replace brake fluid every 2 years. With the engine running, everything is much easier (no bleed nipples on the servo, at least on the two I had on my car-one original and kaput- and the new one). The servo is the same as on standard Alfa Romeo Giulias of the late 60s.
On S2 Fulvias I agree that it is essential to jack up the rear axle to fully open the limiter valve. Cheers, Andrea

The brake master cylinder seems to be faulty as 2 garages later and all the techniques known to man, there is no pressure. The fluid must be passing over the seals. They have been changed for a new set as well!

So, has anyone a used one that I can try with new seals?

Omicron do a bore polish, reseal and bench test service on your own m/cylinder.
I haven't used it (yet) but Martin assures me it works!

Persevere with bleeding.. Try gravity alone at the back first. It takes a long time. I assist with a little (2psi) pressure at the fluid filler on the master cyl. Keep an eye on topping up fluid. When the backs show fluid ,do the fronts. Are you sure the internals of the m/c are correctly assembled and the valving is not gummed up?

Its not the winning but taking part! or is it taking apart?
