hey everyone, how easy is it to change the sight glass on the master cylinders?
I ordered a set from Ebay, but it didn't come with instructions

The hardest part is getting the old one out and cleaning the corrosion and mess from the old one. You can press fit the new one but I would use a very small bead of sealer that will resist hydraulic fluid.
