I want to remove the servo unit and replace with a yellow tag master cylinder, however I am confused to how this connects to the brake limiter, I have seen people mention sometimes lines have to be switched? I have a 1991 rover mini city e. mini sport provides a kit to install the m/c is this just a direct fit? Cheers

On a yellow tag master cylinder the top line runs to the left side of the limiter, bottom pipe runs to the right hand side 👍

The swapping lines refers to changing from the earlier black tag master to yellow tag

Do you have any idea about the type of brake pedal that is required, I know they are different

Any wide pedal pre servo pedal will work and considering you are probably invalidating your insurance of at least massively increasing the premium you may as well fit an MS72 or equivalent type valve and bin the FAM7821.........he lights the blue touch paper and stands back :)

 

On a serious note, what makes you wish to change a great master cylinder/ servo combo going for a lesser part...

Most seem to report that ditching the servo has little to no effect on brake performance, simply makes things harder to press, my main aim is to tidy up the engine bay

I totally agree with absx2,  You could have serious insurance problems

You will not be insured if you don't declare it. You will struggle to get any insurance since you have modified the brakes substantially.


Retro minis do a kit to delete the FAMwtf valve and use the inertia valve for the rear line
