Actually Sylvain, I think in the original installation on the Sierra the master cylinder was angled upwards, such that the reservoir did actually sit horizontally (at least, when the car was on a flat surface!). So your mount is putting the reservoir into the 'original' orientation I think.

You are totally right about the original position of the Sierra M/C. That is certainly why I designed my reservoir mount this way in the first place, and I was correct. But guess I just forgot all about it when I wrote my post above
Thanks for the input

Hi Voucht,

Mounting the reservoir is my last job to do on my car, please could you email me your drawing of design for the mounting and also where did you get your fittings from, sorry for being so cheeky.

My email is terryking838@gmail.com

I Terry,

All drawings, measurements, etc. are in a public folder on my Google Drive:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...mc?usp=sharing

Please read the "Read_me BFRM.pdf", to use the right document(s) according to how you are going to process (BFRM stands for Brake Fluid Reservoir Mount)

Regarding the fittings, I got them from the French company I was forking for at that time, but CBS seem to have the brass ones:
https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/filterSearch?adv=true&cid=0&q=BJOIN&sid=true&isc=t rue

The plastic (Nylon or Acetal Delrin) ones are "Norma" fittings, and I don't really know where to find them in the UK. CBS seem to only have the "Y" kind, but perhaps they can get the straight ones?

Be careful with cheap plastic ones you could find on the web, the material has to be brake fluid resistant!

Sierra master cylinder and reservoir have 1/2 inch inlets/outlets, but I could not find 12mm brake fluid hose. So I had to do with 10mm hose, forced on the reservoir 1/2'' outlets, secured with clamps, and 12-10mm straight union on the master cylinder inlets. So far, absolutely no problem with this set-up.

Hope that will help .

Good luck.
