Thanks Brian51. Excellent article and well written by what appears to be an author with good objective experience.

I think a reasonalbe person would take that article well to heart. In my opinion it is a subtle tho nonetheless strong suggestion to abandon the BTV.

3 to 5 year replacement/rebuild schedule is simply not acceptable.

However, i am amazed that correction to the seal wearing that fast, as mentioned in the article, has not been corrected with some modern replacement. Also somekind of atmosphereic seal as found on modern master cylinders since about 1969 should also be part of the correction/update for the BTV.
