    Default ID19 master cylinder

    I seemed to have developed a leak in the brake circuit somewhere near the master cylinder in my 64 ID.

    I would usually just pop into the shop and get a new master, something like this which suits a HY and numerous other Citroens:

    However, I seem to have the tandem master and emergency pressure system and parts seem to be difficult to get for all of it.

    My thoughts are that I:

    - Pending sizes measuring up, install a single circuit master like the above (or a dual circuit type from a late HY and replumb lines) and disable the emergency override system.

    - If I put in a single circuit type, consider putting in a remote vacuum servo (not that the brakes are that hard to be honest).

    Words of wisdom?

    If it has a normal master cylinder it can't be a 64 model- early 62 at the latest.
