Clutch Master Cylinder


Recommended Posts


We were lucky to complete the RBRR as the seals in the clutch master cylinder decided to start playing up. (We lost the clutch altogether just after Didcot, but luckily it righted itself and managed to get us back to The Plough last night and me home to Essex this morning.)

I seem to be fitting new seal kits about every 2 years or so to my original cylinder, so is there a modern upgrade available that anyone has used or knows of?

I had the the same question in this thread

I ended up putting a new seal kit in the original....

I still think its doable, you might need to enlarge the hole in the bulkead the MC goes through (I think wilwood type cylinder bodies are a larger diameter than the lockheed).

Hi Steve

Cant find the invoice but it's one of these with the matched bore.

You also need to order the push rod clevis to suit.

They do cheaper versions but it test fitted straight on and Girling looked reasonably original period but I'm sure others might work just as well.

Seriously, why spend that much!

Something like this will do the job, except you can walk into your local parts store and pick it up: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/111226986251?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=107

I have a slightly enlarged hole in the bulkhead and fit a complete new trailer m/c. Although I did swap the pushrod last time IIRC.

I know, it's not wilwood, or any fancy uprated shit, it's just cheap, but it copes with my heavier than standard clutch, and more importantly it can fail in the morning and be replaced before lunch with a trip to my local autoparts store.
