IMPORTANT...Series brake m/cyl problem


Recommended Posts

I've just got round to fitting a pattern part dual line brake master cylinder (part no 569671) bought from Paddocks in July only to find it leaking badly. I just spoke to Paddock & they said there is a known problem with this part. They obviously don't feel it warrants a recall or even any action to warn customers of the problem so I thought I should post this in case anyone else has bought one of these recently.

Obviously my experience is only with the part bought from Paddock, but there is a chance that other dealers might be selling these parts from the same source.

"there is a chance that other dealers might be selling these parts from the same source."

Thanks for the warning, safety is paramount, when replacing parts on our vehicles. Can you tell us the name of the manufacture or the name that was on the carton, that the master cylinder came in.

They knew of the parts failure and didn't do anything about it, sad!! :o The only thing that concerns them, is the money. tiddle poor business practice, any wonder I don't deal with them anymore.

as they say, 'you get what you pay for'; with low prices, there's not many staff to cover those kinds of tasks; equally pattern parts are it seems quite frequently inferior. definitely worrying though, I suppose that's part of the reason discussion fora have got such a key rôle.
