Improved clutch cylinder

Post by Not_Anumber »

My Lockheed clutch master cylinder was failing and rather than rebuild it Ive changed to a new Girling type master cylinder as used on the MGC.
It was very easy to bleed and works well.

It just required the pushrod swapping over and the 'shoulder' needed to be ground slightly to match the flat face of the pedal box. The latter took me 10 mins with a Dremel.

As with the MGC the resevoir sits slightly further back so it needs to be filled with a small funnel rather than pouring it in directly from a can - though in my case I'd been using a funnel when filling the Lockheed cylinder anyway.
