Re: Master cylinder fluid leak

@ Sparkywig Sorry can you confirm that your front brake circuit lines are connected to the ports closest to the bulkhead? Front brakes are connected to the ports closest to the bulk head ( larger cylinder ) I would advise running two brake lights switches with a 944 MC. Otherwise the brake light sw...

Re: Electrical problem

I’m no mechanic, but if you have spark and fuel, no reason apart from timing that your engine wouldn’t start. Perhaps if it was cold enough the electronic choke isn’t working. Compression even?? The fact that you have spark, confirms that the ignition is sending power to the coil. Now a weak spark i...

Re: Master cylinder fluid leak

If it’s creeping up the center hole, I would put it down to the fact that either the centre hole in the grommet is too large or the plastic elbow’s outer diameter is too small. Could try heating the elbow with a heat gun and forcing something inside of tube part in an attempt to increase the outer d...
