  1. To my knowledge this master cylinder like the Sierra has one piston but will have two cups unless I’m mistaken. Having given this some thought I am mindful to bleed the master cylinder 1st and then bleed the callipers which then brings about is own issues as a one man job.
  2. It’s a tandem master cylinder with each line going to a separate reservoir. The master cylinder like the Sierra has three outlets; two, one each for the front and a single for the rear brakes being spit at the rear one for each side.
  3. Hi All, This is probably a stupid question but I am wanting to convert my Sierra brake master cylinder dual reservoir to a fiat 19mm master cylinder with dual reservoir. Bleeding with the Sierra unit is straight forward but I’m wondering how I bleed the new proposed system using a single person gunson eazi bleed system with the new fiat based master cylinder noting that it will have two separate reservoirs. Also, how would I connect the low fluid and brake test light switch? Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance Craig
  4. I have a complete set of Yokohama prarada with a 1,000 miles on them - call it £100 for the set if you like - I replaced them over the winter. I’ll double check the sizing if you’re interested. They can be collected either from Doncaster area or Sheffield or can be posted. Cheers Craig
  5. All, I’m replacing my entire fuelling system with new lines filters and pumps. As in the title I’m after a Bosch 044 in-line fuel pump. If any one has one then please let me know. thanks again in advance Craig
  6. Thanks very much for input chaps. or, how about I shave some of the bush face to mount point? Is this realistic or am I just creating another issue?

      Sadly, no. That said, I glued mine to the cycle wing outriggers which is what GBS do now. I used tiger silicone - very good sticky stuff.

  8. All, I hope this finds you all well. I decided to strip my Zero down over the winter ahead of new engine, gearbox, prop, diff, new front end etc. The rear wishbones have been sand blasted and have been powder coated a nice gloss black. I have taken the powder coat away from the inside of the wishbone mount tubes tubes to allow fitting of the new bushes and crush tubes. All lathered with copper grease etc. However, I am now in a struggle to fit the wishbones back to the chassis. My question is this - I am struggling to get a penny washer to either side of the bush when fitting t
  9. I have two sets of cycle wings from my Zero BRG std cycle wings at 240mm wide Red aero cycle wings at 220mm wide Both sets are grp and were glued on to the cycle stays Please let me know Cheers Craig
  10. Might be able to help out - give me a few minutes I’ll get sizes and pictures ready - please pm me you preferred communication for images. Thanks Craig
  11. I’ll take them please. thanks Craig
  12. Should have put Quaife ATB innards... The unit is now back together - with a large shout and thank you to the author (Rich I think according to Nelmo) of the last three RHOCAR magazine editions covering this particular subject, was a great help - with i think the correct backlash but will have to wait and see as I'm waiting on DRD racing from my half shafts, uprights, hub carrier, new bearings and wheel flange - going for a complete rear end re-build.
  13. If you’re still after the cowling, I found the set on Sunday and then promptly lost the bottom half after a massive clear up. Happily go on the hunt again...
