Hello all!

Quick question - what are people doing for Sprint clutch master cylinders these days? The one I have is going to take hours and hours of work to get operating and pretty again, and I'm quite lazy! I can't seem to work out what the correct one to buy.

I used a new (circa £30) Wilwood 0.625" master cylinder, drilled and tapped the 3/8" outlet for the larger Dolomite 7/16" UNF pipe to maintain pedal feel.

Or send your's to me as an exchange with payment of £85 and get an original sleeved in stainless steel and resealed.

Yes, I know more than twice the price, I wasn't going to get them done on that basis, but I was asked to so had a limited batch done and they've proven popular since as I've had to restock twice!.

A few years ago my clutch master cylinder died. My local garage confirmed that a master cylinder for a Land Rover Series 2/2A (part number 90569126) works perfectly, just needs an adapter to reduce (?) the thread size at the hydraulic outlet.

If this is of interest, I can provide pictures of the original and replacement master cylinders.

Regards,

Robert Ross

Thanks Alun. I'll pop the one I have in the post tomorrow.
