Thanks gadge I'm just keeping the momentum- a few spare hours to so I finished cleaning and reassembling the master cylinder from this-

To this-

Tomorrow I'll get started on the pedal assembly which I removed and stripped down today-

I mean when you pressed brake pedal with 126 master cylinder, is the brakes works from middle when is pressed or just top of pedal? Just asking as going to fit to mine and not sure use 126 master cylinder or seicento one.

I'm assuming you Mean the pipe outlets? They are split - the middle 2 are for the front brakes and the front one goes to the rear to create a dual circuit system so in answer both of them!

Here's today's progress pedal box done with refurbed master cylinder. I'm using stainless nylock bolts throughout and I've started that here-

No I think he means the pedal action itself stu - does the pedal work at the top or because it has disc brakes does it work closer to the bottom as it has to fill a bigger caliper over the smaller wheel cylinders.

Sunrises I have front discs using punto mk2 calipers on mine and the pedal does travel longer before it works but when it does work it stops the car far faster than the standard drums did :)

Ah right I see jesus I'm thick sometimes!

any how slow day at work so I re-purposed an old pump part we had laying around into a gearshifter-

(needs a little sand and polish on the end where I cut it down but its going to look cool when done)

Well like I say I don't think it will be necessary to change as the normal setup works fine with front disc brakes. Also the seicento master cylinder has 2 outlets for the rear so you will need to make another line to one of the back brakes.
