Iv tried to go over the swing arm again this morning in the hope it would look better..
However the blemishes or whatever they are aren't budging ..
Are they from me doing a poor job at a previous step or will abut more elbow grease see it right ??

Was looking at the rear master cylinder yesterday and when I took the rubber cap of it looked like this

That normal? The circlip is completely caked in rust.
Is it worth taking apart in an effort to rebuild it or would I just be best buying a new one?

That should clean out with a good soak in some degreasing fluid. Take the black cover off marked with an arrow. There's two or three holes in there make sure they're clean because the fluid wont return properly and the pads will bind on the disc. You can buy a new master cylinder kit off ebay for little money.

Nice one thanks nuggitt. Il get it sorted at the weekend, I seen the rebuild kits for about 15quid so that's alright.

I was going to do caliper on Saturday, its in need of a good clean and change pistons but the 2 bolts are well seized on caliper and the bracket bolts are well rounded frown so have to wait til next week when I got some time off.

Thanks for sorting the pic too. My normal phone give up on me the other day. On the reject phone frown

If the heads are rounded, take thelotoff and clamp the head in a large vice, then rotate the caliper around the bolt. thumbsup
