Hi, I need to change my leaking clutch master cylinder and want to replace the whole unit. I see a number of threads asking the same question but with out a definitive answer.
My current cylinder is a GIRLING 0.70 [64676310]

I see online that these two are available:

https://tvr-parts.com/tvr-parts/part-details/tvr-q... (direct replacement?)

https://www.tmsmotorsport.co.uk/girling-integral-m... (seems expensive?)

Any help would be appreciated, many thanks

The problem you may face going to a non TVR retailer is the outlet threads and port size may be too small i.e won't match your clutch pipe union

Bit of a "no brainer" there!

The TVR Parts one seems to be a good price. The alternative parts list gives Girling 64066117 as the part number for master cylinders on Griff, Chim and Cerb.

I believe the Triumph TR6 LHD fits. Twenty quid

Keep hold of push rod on old one though and fit to TR6

After trying to bleed my clutch with a pedal that was 10mm short of returning, it ended up not returning at all. After removing the master clutch cylinder the return spring has collapsed. I think it has been broken for years but just loosing a bit of fluid left the pedal grounded.
