Could be, Trevor.  The rebuilt MC for my Midget was so inexpensive that I 
didn't even consider rebuilding the one in the car. Plus, the reservoir on 
the one that came with the car was dented and I wanted it to look better.

However, Bill seemed to indicate that he was a novice at repairing his car in 
the original post, so rather than attempt a rebuild and bugger it up if the 
bore is scored and not worth rebuilding, I think he is better off just 
replacing it.

And, BTW, sandwiches are cheaper in the States!
