This was/is a brand new slave cyl on the Midget...
on spanking new rebuilt ribcase from Ted S.
Less than a year old... maybe 500 miles tops....
and it leaks badly.

Upon inspection I see the inner walls badly scored
and the piston inner end all scratched up.
seal is fine.

Has anyone ever considered making a piston
out of nylon or Delrin?
Seems like it would be fairly easy to lathe one up
that couldn't scratch the inner cyl.

anybody prepared to make up a batch? interested in one?
