I have loads of pictures which ill post up now, I took out the brake pressure connector and looked at the fitting on the original and on this new one, the top is the same and the connector is just a different shaped spade so I got another connector that fitted and put it on the original wire and that all seems to work now.

And yes Paul you can put up your pics although my hair in some is umm... :)

Will try and get better pics but have bad lighting, plus car is covered in dirt and dust.

New Master Brake Cylinder, painted up original servo.
Apart from the box and actual pedals most parts of the pedal assy are new

Could you be a bit more specific mate? Both the engine and gearbox have been rebuilt, not just 'cleaned'! I.E new crank pistons ect on the engine and gearbox internals !

De-greaser (brake cleaner!) always seems to be a good start to get the muck off!
15 years of dust to remove, ohh joy!

And thanks vivamad! Will be back at it as soon as it's warmer! The engine is sitting in but need to mate the gearbox still - then hopefully just doing all the little things! Fingers crossed should be running by summer!
