    Yes it does CB, but it leaks into the cabin on failure the same as yours!

    Thing is mate, that would have been ideal for me because my intention is to get it rebuilt by PastParts. I don't wanrt a repetition of what happened to CB. The existing one is ok but it's been in there for 20 years and was a real cheapo in the first place.

    Good news indeed CB, I don't suppose you've found a clutch master cylinder such as the one I need? I've had another look at your original post and I am certain that I've seen one identical to your original black clutch input cylinder in my quest to find the one I need. Would you like me to try and find the source or are you happy with doing it the way that you've adopted?

    Thanks John, but I'm looking fpr a spare. The one that''s on there at the mo' is a cheapo I installed twenty years ago. I want a duff one so that I can send it to Pastparts for refurb.

    Which one have you got mate, is it the same design as CB's? I'm looking for the one that bolts to the bulkhead with a reservoir fed by a flexi hose, part no 21521156002. Please see image:

    CB, Stuff is called Lizardskin. I beleive it is a top quality US product that these people stock.

    As far as the rubber coating is concerned there was a firm in Yate retailing some stuff that was supposed to be the dog's whatsits. I'll see if I can find some info. Just remembered, they werre called "Buzzweld".

    I remember seeing this car down in Gary's Mum's place and drooling, what a shame! Well CB for what it's worth, I stripped and welded both front floors due to rust , primed and painted them and soundproofed the finished product (the whole cabin) in ersatz dynamat. I cleaned and treated everything I could to get rid of fluid and damp leaving my original sound proofing out for months to dry. Funnily enough the sound proofing I discarded as being worse was from Tim. Did you sort out the central locking afterwards and if so what was wrong?

    Try Mister Auto UK, I've just sourced several of varying prices.

    That's awful mate, I'll keep an ear to the ground for a sound proofing piece for you. I did exactly the same as you and kept topping up the reservoir. Mine was far worse however - water leaking into the cab had added to the mix. Which car is this?

    Problem is the hard rubber covering for the foam rubber is brittle after all these years, cracks and crumbles. It would be interesting to hear how you get on with some pics please.

    I had the same problem, exacerbated with water ingress. I managed after much searching to get one but it turned out worse than the existing, so after last years re-furb I cleaned up what I had and reinstalled it. A real PITA brawd.
