Aluminum rear M/C cover...

Recommended Posts

avanti
Here is a pic of the aluminum rear master/cylinder cover I just made.  I thought I'd post a pic before painting it black since it shows up much better in raw aluminum. 
 
I also must give kudos to  onlinemetals.com  (with whom I have nothing other than a customer relationship).  I usually buy such things from McMaster-Carr and have for years with great satisfaction--indeed, I have an account with them.  But, I must say that onlinemetals beat M-C's price by a factor of 4 (NOT a typo) on this aluminum stock!!!  Amazing; and, shipping and arrival time were both comparable between the two companies!!!  WOW!!!

Here it is painted and installed. 
 
Even though the m/c must be removed to add fluid I opted to put a "sight port" (drilled a hole) on inside of the aluminum cover to allow a quick glance at the fluid level with the aid of a flash-light.
 
Oops; I realized when looking at the pic that I'd tightened it down with a bit much of a tip.  So, I "leveled" it better than pictured here.

Thanks, hobbs; but no, the stock rad reservoir cover doesn't bother me.
