    Default 1961 Citroen ID19 front break Piston/cylinder+LHS Rubber ring wanted not urgent

    Hello, All I am thinking to do front break again as driver side is slightly leaking. Car stops good and I don`t see loosing a lot of fluid.
    When I dismantled it last time, the slot where O-ring fit was not smooth, but I cleaned best I can and put them back. Oring were both in good condition though... I should have put silicon on the surface.
    I thought I would just have parts ready so I can do when ever I can.

    I assume you are talking about the early ID master cylinder assembly in a pedal operated brake ( note the spelling ) system.
    Most master cylinders and wheel cylinders in conventional braking systems can be re-sleeved mostly using stainless sleeves to bring the bores back to the original condition and dimensions. Have you considered this option? There are still people around in the brake reconditioning industry that specialise in this work. Your nearest brake service can probably arrange to send the work to a specialist!

    Actually, I thought Kazu was referring to the brake calipers. A difficult job to do once, let alone again. I agree with Gerry although I have a few of these master cylinders. I haven't looked but there might be a good one amongst them.
    Let us know if it's the brake cylinder or the brake calipers that you are thinking of tackling? ---- Michael

    Hello Gerry and Micheal Thanks for your reply!

    Master cylinder works well and I cannot see any leak from there( But I cannot see it anyway..)

    Yes I was talking about caliper cylinder.

    Do you have them? Groove where o-ring fit must be perfect though....


    Please let me know.

    Thank you.

    I think Andy has a similar problem so I supplied him with some parts to find a good set of piston "whatever you call them". I have some more calipers so maybe You could have a go as well. Problem is, they really need to be pulled apart to see if they're any good.
    Hang in there! --- Michael. PS Andy is going well with His old ID and the '57 DS. I love my '62 ID Safari now that it's on the road.

    That green ID safari is fantastic! Is your navy blue ID still running well?

    I think you mean the grey French ID. Yes, it's going very well. My brother John is bringing down a load of parts from QLD in a month.
    All the Best Michael
