    Remote brake fluid reservoir - AK

    Hi All

    I am looking to fit a remote brake fluid reservoir to my AK and would like to know what other AK owners have done.

    Also, does anyone know what size the push fittings are for the reservoir on the Rover 25 master cylinder.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Kind regards

    Rob

    I thought about this, in the end I bought a big syringe and metal straw, the metal straw is bent over at the last 2 inches, this I bent a little further so it was angled better to go into the top of the cylinder.
    The longer straight end went over the end of syringe outlet, so I bonded with epoxy and heat shrieked over the top of the joint.
    I wanted to retain control when filling the reservoir.
    I initially had a tube joining them but it was flopping around dropping fluid everywhere!!!

    It's crap where it is to fill...............
