>> The brake master cylinder is the one for a Rover 3500S/ Jaguar v12 E

>> since the inception of both cars.  What the guys are talking about on 
>> the Rover net is the little end piston between the master cylinder 
>> and the air valve.  If you are rebuilding an original Rover 3500S you 
>> need a different kit as the little seal on that piston is 5/16' 
>> diameter on the original Jaguars, and 3/8' on the Rover 3500S.
>> Rover 3500S switched in 1974 to the Etype piston when they did the 
>> next run on production from Lockheed.  That is why all the 
>> confusion.  When some one is rebuilding a original 3500S they need a 
>> different kit that has the larger air valve piston seal SSB 925 If 
>> you have the later Master Cylinder or a replacement cylinder after 
>> 1976 you have the smaller seal.and that kit # is SSB 916 .
>> As Kent will attest to:  if you are buying a kit from me You have to 
>> tell me the diameter of the piston on the end.
>> For you, that information was not required as you were buying a new 
>> master cylinder,  you are fine!!!
>> Just install and bleed the system.
