Renovating the Master Break Cylinder / Renovering av huvudbromscylindern

The main cylinder house has been Sandblasted and Powder-coated, and a renovation-kit has been ordered.  Actually it was a bit more fiddling than I expected to put this back together again. Especially the part where one should check if the overflow hole is open by introducing a 0.5mm metal thread in to it and check when the cylinder touches it. Without the Volvo workshop manual I would have been totally lost.  Great drawings and descriptions.

Huvudcylindern har nu blivit blästrad och pulverlackad, och en renoveringssats inköpt. Det visade sig vara lite mer plock med detta än jag trodde. I synnerhet momentet där man skulle kolla utjämningshålet med en 0.5 mm metalltråd och mäta spelet. Utan Volvo’s verkstadshandbok skulle det inte gå. Vilka jättefina sprängskisser och beskrivningar.
