I have rebuilt a dual circuit M/C for a friends late Spitfire 1500(the car was
registered in Aug '81, exactly a year after production ceased) I found this to
be easy enough to do as long as I followed the instructions correectly and
installed all three seals the correct ways(NOTE, I say ways as one seal fits in
the opposite direction to the others).
So I say go for it, these things were made to be repaired from time to time,
not renewed, this ain't no Mazda we're talking about.....:-)
