I am about to install my recently refurbished brake fluid reservoir.
The final step has been finding the correct stainless steel spring to insert in each of the two strainers to prevent them from collapsing.
I ordered a selection of lengths and tensions, and have found the ideal one:
It is not a big job to put them in next time you open and service your reservoirs.
This great idea I read about on this forum, but cannot remember who suggested it - so thank you to my secret wise advisor.

Well done Patrick. It may have been me, being doing it for quite a few years now.
The only thing to watch is that the spring is not too long before compressing, so there is plenty of room between the coils. Sounds like you've covered all the bases thaough. :D

It was Paul Yorke that suggested this mod.

Now that I think back, it was you - many thanks.
I did have what you suggest in mind. The spring metal is quite small in diameter and the compression wis minimal, but strong enough to discourage the strainer from collapsing.
Having said that, I am going to double check anyway.
Thanks again- great idea - Rolls should have adapted it in their time.
