    Rock hard brake pedal issue help

    You probably need to adjust the master cylinder pushrod. I'll bet there's no free play in it. * When there's no free play the piston can't fully return and let the fluid flow back into the Res. Resulting in a very hard pedal and sometimes locked brakes

    Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    I pulled out the washer unit back when I moved the aircleaner up a little. Unfortunately I need a WOF so have to put it back in. I picked up a washer unit from a 2nd gen at a wreckers (mine was not a mitsi or Holden, and was cut up and siliconed together for some reason) Finding somewhere to put it proved the hardest part. I also don't like the position of my overflow bottle, it kinda overflows onto all the electrics.... So the current solution is to relocate both of them. A little clearance needed to the inner fender for the washer (where the recovery tank was)and then mounted a bracket off the current battery tray for the overflow. Pretty happy with it for now, it's going to go through another few evolutions probably. I quite like those metal recovery tanks that bolt to the side of the radiator. At some point I think I will relocate the battery under the tray, and maybe move the washer unit with it to really clean up the engine bay (to say nothing of getting rid of all that wiring....)

    If it's turbo that might be a bit close for comfort For shielding you can just do a piece of panel steel folded up to provide an air gap. Insulate where it mounts with some rubber or cork gasket and you are laughing. Morris minors have a folded up box packed with asbestos
