The guru has spoken...and most eloquently, too.
>> ` `` .
>> The brake master cylinder is the one for a Rover 3500S/ Jaguar v12 E
>> type and all 4.2 E types. There is no difference between your brake
>> lines and Jaguars. they are both 3/8 national fine and have been
>> 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.
