9/16 front master cylinder rebuild

All,

I have a 2005 Low Rider that had a bunch of crap in master cylinder. Ive rebuilt master cylinders before, but I cant get the outer dust shield in place!

There is a small plastic "cap" that rides on the piston shaft, and it goes through the dust shield, and the dust sheild has to be somehow pressed back into the bore.

Whats the trick?

I hold the MC in a vise, find a socket that you can use to tap/press the seal into place, put a bolt in the socket that protrudes a little(a deep socket with a bolt and a nut to keep it square works good). The bolt will push on the cap/piston and compress the spring and the socket will push the seal into position...sometimes they go in hard so be prepared.

Used a vise and a small allen wrench to push in seal. Huge pain in ass, but got it done
