Remote master cylinder solution

if you have a ford master cylinder and you need to make it have a remote resivour, i found these down the scrap yard off a fiat punto. perfect solution!

the punto was this shape not sure about the engine size as it had no engine in it but it had a remote master cylinder resivour and i found 2 in the scrap yard so not that hard to find. and ive bleed the breaks out now and they seem great but make sure you get proper brake fluid hose or you will fail SVA.

got my self down to local fiat dealers at the weekend, parts down do weekend, went in on my lunch today - cant look anything up without a vin or reg no - no worries, my GF had a punto until last week, cant remember reg but il phone her - she left her phone at home.

a bit pissed i left and went to get lunch from tescos, what do i see parked in front of me, a v reg punto nabbed the reg and went back to fiat after i got my lunch, i now have two of the adaptors on the way (about 3 days)

will let you know part no's once they get here.

tried them in both a girling and a bendix and fine in both, i didnt use them in the end though as i didnt have enough space anywhere for a reservoir, managed to get a sierra one

I ordered the parts as per the part number and they will not fit my master cylinder, they are smaller than the ones in the picture. Has anyone had this problem?
