Rebuilding Shimano BL M585 Deore LX master cylinder
I have a set of these on my 26" HT, they have been good brakes and I don't want to replace them but, my rear brake has begun to leak mineral oil at the lever. I assume a rebuild would fix the issue but I can't find any parts listed anywhere. I seem to remember these were supposed to be the same mechanically as the XT of the era(2005ish), any thoughts as to what I can do to salvage these brakes, thanks in advance.
Shimano doesn't list any internal parts for that brake lever: http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830608737.pdf
Could it be leaking from the hose? If so try tightening it and if that doesn't work shorten it slightly and put in a new olive.
If all that fails get another lever. Shimano says all their levers are cross compatible, and you can find them for around $25. Just make sure they have the same style hose fitting (in your case inline rather than banjo).
