MK2 polo brake reservoir twin 40's

Recommended Posts




I'm currently fitting twin 40's and notice that the brake reservoir would hit the filters.once fitted but only just.


This is the old type master cylinder fitted to VW with no servo.


I can see that I have the following options;


1: Some how to lift the brake reservoir with connectors if they exist;

2: Find a brake reservoir that is slightly off centre to shift it to the left with the same gap between the inputs;

3: Use individual brake reservoir (IS THIS POSSIBLE) like small motorbike ones;

4: Fit a smaller brake master cylinder which is normally fitted to the cars with servo, would require modding the pedal push pin etc... but still might have to either 1-3.

5: Remote brake reservoir.


I'm seeking advice mainly on "3" is it possible or what other people have done with fitting twin 40's 


Kind Regards

I started with a Left Hand Drive polo with servo. 

Sorry not a clue about other servos.

That's no help I know, but Danny Lee had Weber Dcoe with about 10mm trumpets and no filters!

Maybe trumpet screens / gauzes?


But there is a different reservoir shape that might clear the carb... 


maybe it is same reservoir on backwards!
