Can you get a picture of where yours has failed?

The weld around the tube the pedal bolts through has given way also the only strengthening brace has buckled.

Not a good picture but I hope you can get to see the issue.



I have sent it away to be welded and have some extra strengthening fillets fitted if it still flexes when i refit then I may well look at Ian's resolution.

I have also now ordered a BMC4052 Master Cylinder through Brakes International bargain at £38
