It Goes - It Stops!
I'm happy to have the classic Mini back on the road.
The rebuild kit for the brake master cylinder arrived Friday and Mike Darby, Richard Cunningham and I got it back together (it took all three of us to hold it together against the spring to get the snap ring in place). Re-installed the MC in the little car without drama and actually got the pedal re-attached without swearing a blue streak. Richard suggested removing the drivers seat for better access and he was able to get the clevis pin back in while I wiggled the brake pedal to align everything.
We bled the system and now I've got all the stopping power that 7 inch drums on four wheels can muster.
