Just been tyding up the brake reservoir as the sight glasses were quite hard to read and the external a little rusty,on lifting the lid the mesh it had a small screwdriver shaped hole ? but fairly clean next the aluminium splash guard securing bolt was missing strange but not a disaster. Fluid a bit dark but no bits and no sludge in the bottom good sign. Now the filters the master cylinder one mesh had sperated from the bottom plate ( rr363 eats solder?) No1 system mesh had 90% seperated from solder at the bottom plate No2 system no mesh present why would anyone not bother with a filter answer £92.26 each.A couple of hours later after a rummage in my scrap box and a session on the Myford new bigger finner mesh filters.As usual the allen head countersunk on the sight glasses rounded out despite a brand new key being used, heads drilled and thankfully threads removed with a easyout.The glass o rings had swollen greatly and gone very soft so possibly were the wrong material last time they were changed or that's how they go after 53 years .
