There are a few questions that must be answered before you could get a true and complete answer. Why do you say the reservoir will no longer work? Is there a blockage in the line and the problem is not the reservoir itself. there could be a blockage in the reservoir or the line that is causing the problem. I believe there was someone that rebuilt their reservoir on this forum but I myself would locate the actual problem myself first. Find where the actual problem is. Disconnect the line at the end away from the reservoir and see if there is any fluid being pumped and if not disconnect at the reservoir and try to see if there is any fluid action. If there was a large amount of cud in the bowl if might have been forced into the passage to the brakes and causing a blockage.So I actually went to bleed my brakes as well and ran into trouble. Long story short the reservoir I have will not longer work. Will this replace it? I was thinking of just swapping the levers out for the chrome ones I have on my bike currently.
