TRAC held its second Tech Session at the home of club Treasurer, Sherman Taffel on Saturday January 6.  This session focused master cylinder overhaul and the group disassembled, cleaned and started the reassembly of Sherman's clutch and brake master cylinders for his TR4.

Members standing from the left: Gary Klein, Russ Pagano, Scott Reese, and Ben Heller.  Kneeling and holding his newly soon to be transformed parts is Sherman Taffel.


A photo early in the day, just after the master cylinder's piston was pushed out with low pressure compressed air.  Sherman's holding a reproduction page from his manual showing a break-out of the master cylinder's internal parts.  They don't make manual's with details like his TR4's any more.

Below, the same cylinder after cleaning, ready for reassembly.
