How do I completely seat the brake fluid reservoir onto the master?
I am working on a 1979 300TD and have replace the seals between the master cylinder and reservoir. I am unable to get the reservoir down all the way into the seals so that the bottom of the reservoir is in contact with the seals. The closest I can get it is approx 1/4". And when I fill the reservoir with fluid the fluid "weeps" out from the seal area, I have even taken the reservoir back off and double checked that the bottom of the seal is flush with the bottom of the stem from the reservoir.
I have removed and attempted to reinstall the reservoir t least 5x with the new seals. The reservoir works into place into the seals installed in the master cylinder but I can not get it to slip in for that last little bit so the bottom lip on the reservoir stem is past the bottom of the seal.
Is dit een goede vraag?
