Default Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

We usually mill the slot in the large piston letting it sit further out in bore so the cup doesn't overlap the miss-drilled porting (and leak) in those "high" quality wheel cylinders.

If you compare the location of the hole in your old wheel cylinder with the new ones; you should be able to see if you rec'd the better parts.

On the Master Cylinder....does the rubber boot go "over" the round thin flange or does it go outside that round flange ?

Thx....Mike

Are you using reproduction shoes? While a lot of the cylinders being sold are junk, there is also a issue that the portion of the shoes on the NEW reproduction shoes that the piston pushes against is made too long and has to be ground down.
