Seals in the master cylinder kaput? They went on my MGB after bleeding the brakes. Most likely because bleeding them moved it onto a rusty section and killed the seals.

If you put constant pressure on the pedal, it'd go to the floor.

Alloy master cyls are okayish but can flip the seals if you're over vigorous or are working on Vauxhall rubbish.

Iron/steel ones - ALWAYS use a pressure bleeder.

I just bleed brakes by pumping a few times but never taking the pedal below its normal travel so as not to damage the seals. Then I just let it drip to get rid of any remaining air.

This Anjou has the Cotal gearbox. There is also a model 864.

Auto Victor was quite nice and could probably be put back on the road.

Anyway, I collected the engines and boxes with Laycock de Normanville overdrive units. I intend to fit an overdrive with gearbox to my Snipe. It cruises happily in the mid-80's as it is, but an overdrive would be a welcome fitment.
