front brake master cylinder

Has anyone striped out the two little screws that hold the cap on? I have striped the two screws and can not get the cover off. Does anyone have any ideas how to remove the 2 striped screws?

I use a impact driver (screw driver you hit with a hammer) to get them most of the time. If they are really stripped then I use a small chisel to work them loose. The really bad ones (nothing else works) I drill the head of the screw off and then remove the threaded end.

I never had to take them off till I got my new front brake conversion. Which I had to add brake fluid. Ya it's pretty bad. I'm going to drill them out and do something diffrent.

Just drill the heads off and you can probably grab the piece sticking out with a pair of vise grips and get them out. I wouldnt drill them all the way out.

Wouldnt hurt to put a layer of silicone on the new ones so the water cant get in either and rust up again.

Toodeeps last suggestion is what I always do.
The screws are junk anyway so just drill the heads off of them and go and get new screws.

Also noticed that i have play in my upper a-arm bushings. Is there a rebuild kit for the a-arms? As long as I have her apart I'm going to replace the bushings.
