    Looking for a good setup for my '90. My original is getting weak. Looking for a good used set that hasn't been sitting around drying out or sucking up moisture. Not opposed to new if someone has parts that didn't get used or whatever. Thanks

    Stock front brake master

    Currently running a 14mm master. Looking to put stock 5/8 back on. The 14 was nice with the 320 rotor/6 pot caliper conversion but it's a tad bit spongy with dual brake setup.

    I ordered a rear master cylinder rebuild kit and when I took my old one off I didn't pay close enough attention I guess! Can someone tell me which way the orings go on the inside of it? I know they go on each end of the metal piece inside of it but they are tapered and I don't remember which way...
