SS1 Ti brake master reservoir

Most of the 70’s 80’s Lockheed reservoirs share the same spacing for the feed tubes and securing screws, so any that share the same angled fitting should be OK.

SS1 Ti brake master reservoir

I couldn’t find the reservoirs for the ss1 only the SE6A ones. If it helps the part I was trying to find was GMC217R, it fits onto GMC217 which is the TR7 master cylinder assembly. There are a few on eBay.

Ebay Fees, how much ??

True, for a car I only accept Cash or BACS. Absolutely no PayPal, as well as the silly fees it can be reversed in some circumstances.

I just take a DVLA screen printout. Once when I forgot to take anything, I just got the details up in my phone from the DVLA website.

It also allows you to make contact with buyers outside of eBay and cost about £35 last time I used it. Cheaper than using the eBay "Buy it Now" format too. Pe...
