I'm stumped just trying to remove the reservoir. It doesn't screw off the base of the master because there's a little plastic peg (at the arrow and a little difficult to see in this pic) that fits into a hole in the master so that the reservoir can not be turned left or right. I can't imagine it's just a friction fit but I did try just a bit of pressure on it to see if it would simply pull straight out...but no luck. The other problem is that if it IS some sort of friction fit, I doubt I could make something that would fit it properly. BTW, just to the right of that little peg is a rubberized washer that is between the res. and the master. I can poke it and it flexes. For whatever that might be worth.

Is there a secret to getting this apart...or is it made so us hot rodders can't tamper with it. I could probably cut that tab...but maybe end up creating some other disaster. Looks like lowering the whole unit is rapidly becoming the most viable option.
