I'm sure they're available, but that may be more of a hassle unless you're making your own lines, which I am-with a proportioning valve, of course! Most people would probably be better off with the VW or whatever piece. Thanks for the info, Andrej!

: The only problem with the Wilwood piece is that it uses SAE fittings, and has two female ends. I don't know about the availability of suitable metric adapters.

: : You can also get aftermarket residual pressure valves from Summit or Jegs that Willwood makes. Or you can just get a adjustable proportioning valve instead. Worth the $40, IMHO!

: : You can use whatever resevoir that you want if it fits! They both get the fluid to it's destination!

: : Ben

: : : Hi and thanks...
: : : : Just picked up a 530i brake master cylinder, it had the resevoir mounted on top...do I toss it, & get different rubber plugs and use my resevoir?...or keep it?.
: : : :
: : : :Also, I found some pressure valves for rear brake lines, I got them off a 87 VW golf..I guess I just screw it into the master cylinder rear brake port??...
: : : :Thanks for any input......John...
