    Of couse the copper sealing washers on the bolt going into the master cylinder are leaking now, so I need to try and source replacements. Hopefully i can find something locally.
    Croft Trailer has the factory copper washers in stock.
    That assembly requires two different sizes.
    They carry all the factory parts for that Hydro-Act surge brake assembly.

    Croft has the rearmost washer listed as 9/16. I grabbed a pack from O'reilly's, still too small. I re-anealed and sanded the other one but it still leaked. Slower this time though! Ended up ordering a new bolt, washers, and the little block the brake line connects to, just in case. I don't have time to mess with this thing anymore. Those parts arrive today, hoping to bleed the brakes and be done!

    I did go through croft originally and got a new shock and bushings from them.

    You know, I don't know why, but a 9/16 washer still won't for far enough down on the bolt. I just used a 5/8 from a harbor freight washer assortment and it fixed it right up. Of course it's leaking from the flared compression fitting now but it will have to wait to be fixed. Tiny leak and brakes work great so it's gonna stay.
