It's the piston assembly inside the master clutch

I have the brake rod, circlip, piston, spring, rod,
small piston, plastic cup and inside the spring a cap
that keeps the rod attached to the main piston. I

I just figured it out a few minutes ago. I push the
rod down towards the piston, then unhook the rod off

piston, the spring, then unlatch the "cap" and removed
the main seal. Whew! It's all boxed up and ready to
ship. Thanks.
