Rear master cylinder GL100KZ

Post by wingman1000 »



Hi, I am rebuilding the rear brakes on my KZ as they were seized after laying idle for several years. I found that after I got the calliper rebuilt the master cylinder would not bleed so I suspected the master cylinder also needed attention so I bought a repair kit for it. However, when I stripped the cylinder and took the cup off, the spring shot out and I cannot find a detailed picture of the order of the contents of the cylinder; can someone help please? I have tried various combinations of the parts but it still wont pump fluid.
TIA
Chris

Thank you,I have seen this but I am unclear which way round the spring and two washers go. Most pictures in manuals are great for identification of parts but are not clear enough.
