Reading the reviews there are quite a spread of experiences. I found no quality problems with the threads as some people did but as I read the reviews after fitting I would have only given the item a cursory glace before fitting. As others have commented, the machined flat where the hydraulic pipe enters the casting was a slightly different angle to the original part but as long as you finger tighten the pipe union all of the way into the casting before bolting it to the block, all should be well. Where the difference in angle was more of an issue was tightening the union once all assembled, it was difficult to get a one flat rotation of the spanner against the obstruction of the subframe. Do use a brake pipe spanner on the union - the only "special" tool needed. Other than that a surprisingly straight forward task through the FOS arch.
Priced brilliantly less than £15 Inc postage and arrived next day.
