I recall the old one being something of a friction fit, maybe just from grime. The new one can be rotated very easily. Two new snap rings were used. Is that right?

Ok. And btw I realize the bleeder is supposed to be on top.

H Russ, I would slather some Anti-Seize on the ID of the housing, it will facilitate removal MUCH easier at a later date. Coming along nice. Vince's friend, Pete.

slave

the flex hose should be installed on the slave 1st. Then with the bleed port at the top the flex hose can be connected to the hard line and if done properly will hold the slave in the correct position.
But the slave has to be held (by the flats) to loosen & tighten the bleeder.
You can drill the mount and tap it for a lock bolt if you want a fixed cylinder for easy bleeding.

I connect the flex to the hard line and leave it tight then spin the slave to make the connection at that end but I have to rotate the slave a little with a wrench when bleeding.
