Hi,

Can anyone tell me for certain, what is the correct length of an October '75 Sprint, clutch, slave cylinder, pushrod please?
I have read where its 80mm and another where is 9cm.
A previous owner has fitted the wrong unit to my car, where the pushrod is only about 50mm long and will require lengthening.

All the best in these strange, difficult and dangerous times.

Cheers,
Rob

The 80 and 90mm dimensions were in reference to an 1850 Rob,
which has a completely different clutch operating system
(even though the components used are the same).


I will remove a Sprint push rod later and report back....

The pushrod itself has a length is 70mm and
the length from the end to the centre of the eyes is 90mm.
