The master cylinder is leaking. Are the seals available somewhere or can a person use a standard o-ring compatablie with brake fluid? It appears the part I need to replace is 6-24-8. The service manual lists 8a as well and I'm not quite sure what thats all about.
I sell master cyl repair kits for Amphicar master Cyl.(not VW REPLACEMENTS SOME HAVE PUT ON) they cost $50 for all parts.when rebuilding a Amphicar master you must make sure there are no pits in the bore, if there is it may not work(leak or take in air)
There was 2 masters used on Amphicars one has a different sealk than the other. 8 vs 8a. my kits are of the 8 vaiety.
It is just easyer to buy a whole ne Amphicar replacement Master for $120.00 exchange,bolt it on bleed and go, no moods needed!
I even have a few NOS masters but there more..$220.00

hi gord-this is brad anderson island im also rebuilding my master
cylinder but was not aware of two rebuild kits how d0 you tell the difference are
they marked? s0 i could get the correct rebuild kit from you if needed please
let us know how to distinguish 8 or 8a-thanks brad-anderson island
THE DIFFERENCE IS IN TH MASTER PISTON.
THE BEST WAY TO TELL THEM APART IS TO LOOK AT THE RUBBER.
ONE YOU CAN SEE ALU, ON BOTH SIDES OF RUBBER, The other you can not, other than the thinner alu the ram goes in
