Jaguar E-type with a braking problem

This gorgeous Jaguar E-type came to us with a braking issue. The pedal was long and the brakes were sticking momentarily before being released. The car is fitted with a nearly new set of Wilwood calipers which are functioning as they should. We looked at the reaction valve and decided to replace the master cylinder. Once the old master cylinder was removed we could see that the piston was getting stuck as it returned.
