Just completed the major rebuild of the 2000 rally car and invested in some upgrades which have really impressed me and wanted to share.

The clutch hydraulics are regularly featured on here and having suffered myself I ditched the original master and slave and replaced as recommended with a Girling master (still looks period) and a land Rover Slave. Poured fluid in, opened bleed with no helper, let fluid run through and immediately had a pedal! Then got wife to pump pedal once just to check and perfect. What a revelation. Girling master also came with C clipped cotter and lovely robust Alloy push rod attachment.

that saves a lot of hassle and worth doing, just wondering did you try removing the bleed nipple completly from the original slave cylinder to see if fluid came through,

I eventually sorted my Lockheed master cylinder after a heck of a lot of faf and though about going Girling but Lockheed behaved itself just before it was confined to the bin!  Actually check Stag master cylinder design (on ebay) which is the same as the big saloon (Mk2 early and late) if unsure about which seals to use - please don't ask why I had the problem .......

Yes I think it will be Girling next time unless for a car with special history and needs to stay original - I have spares for the marathon Land Crab!

Hi Tim and JensH

Please see images attached.

No idea of part numbers as I bought a couple of years ago but they are still available on Demon Tweeks and JJC Rally to name a few places. Its the Girling Cylinders with integral reservoir you search for. The push rod attachment and circliped collar are seperate parts listed or ask the helpful chaps at the suppliers mentioned and they'll find them for you. There are cheaper/different types of these cylinders but I just chose Girling because they look reasonably original. Probably not made by girling as the casting isn't pristine but then I dont think they ever were. They work anyway.
I use a MKII pedal box so the master was slightly offset. With a MK1 pedal box it would be a straight swap over I think.

Cheers
Darren

Will make at threat and have promised my self to join the club after this new year
Its far from original but a good basis for a running resto. Need to rebuild all suspension and hydraulics as it as been standing for a long time. Lost the engine and od box to a tr but I now have a 2 ltr from a mk 2 and another od box to go in.
Gave it a new nose cone last year after a front
Collision (po).
Still Need a little welding to sills and doors.

Hi Jens H,
I think I have enough spares to build you a complete clutch hydraulic system on the shelf here in Copenhagen (you will need slave/master rebuild kits and end fittings for the braided clutch line, or take your chance with the one complete red plastic one i have left)...



Use em or loose em

Hi Daniel,
Still got the original set up, incl. the red platic one
But as it has been standing for a few years now, it is in need for a rebuild anyway - and as the car is far from original, I will go for what ever is the easiest solution, as long as it will work on a long term... so to speak
