Could you please explain mate, for us numpties on here,,
Never come across a check valve in a master cylinder .
Only ever come across a pushrod, 3 seals, couple of springs , couple of washers, normally with a few holes in to allow the fluid to escape ,so as not distort the seals ....

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
