Rebuilding a m/c for a standing pedal 1967 Super. It has a single booster and single circuit brakes. When disassembling, my rag slipped and compressed air blew parts a few feet to the back of my workbench. Looking for the correct order of and orientation of the parts. Could not find a graphic when searching the bb. Found a graphic from a workshop guide, but it did not show the tapered sprimg. Attached is a pic of what I think is correct, but not sure. Especially the orientation of the spring and the cup shaped rubber seal. Can anyone confirm what is correct? Thanks

OK, nevermind. Tried to copy it on too small of a screen.....looking at it now on larger monitor, yep, wrong one. Sorry. I have my CarDisc PDFs here on this laptop but I can't find the correct ATE master cylinder.

It's ok. I hope someone steps up with that information. I know Papajam would have posted the answer.
Yep. He would know. Oh well, guess I will just assemble it on the bench and bench bleed. Maybe it will only go together one way.

In your pic, the left side rubber seal butts up to the brass washer, which itself butts up to the piston.

in other words, move the seal from one end of the spring to the other. Might be the conical spring should be rotated also.

Thanks Don! Will give it a try. I will re arrange and post a new pic hoping it may be helpful to others in the future.

OK! Laid it all out as Don suggested and everything appears to be oriented correctly and in the right place. Will reassemble and test on the bench.

Remember to orient both seals to push fluid toward the back of the cylinder.

What is the clear plastic engine breather hose?, and where is it going to?

That hose is pressurised so really that K&N filter is inside out and provides too much of an obstruction for the fumes .Assuming you don`t want to vent directly into the atmosphere as the original engine in your car did, I would just run the 2 litre air filter with the connection for the crankcase fumes.

Thanks for the input Richard. Have seen similar installations, but will rethink it. Dont have access to a 2 liter air filter assembly. No such thing as a carbed 2.0 in the U. S. Would have to get a euro filter. Attached is a pic of my carbs and filter setup.

I reckon a clever person, who can cut and weld, would be able to get the injection filter box to fit ...

Thanks Pete. Going with the air cleaners as shown. Had similar setup on my GTV which worked well.
