[DMCForum] Re: Urgent brake problem

Is it a possibility that you have a duff new master cylinder, I had 
a very similar problem on my little triumph spitfire, the symptoms 
where exacatlly the same as you describe but the master cylinder on 
a spitfire is about the size of a walnut.

The pedal neaded pumping half the time or it didn't break at all.

Somone once told me 'just because it's a new component don't rule it 
our as the cause of the problem'

Wise words.
