Greetings all - I am a member over on the MGB site, and have been helping a friend of mine work on his 1965 Sunbeam Alpine. He doesn't have internet access at home, so isn't able to post on your site, so I thought I would give it a go. His clutch master is leaking too bad to use, as it has some bad pitting on the cylinder. We can't seem to find a source for a replacement, and haven't been able to find a local shop willing to re-sleeve it. Does anyone know where we might be able to purchase a new or good used one? If not, how about a shop in the states that can re-sleeve his original one?

Thanks

There arent any state side. You can get them new from Alpines West Midlands in the UK. Very reasonable. Forget trying to get a used unit or rebuilding a bad one.

Try White post restorations, in White post VA. They can re sleeve it for you.

We ended up using a clutch master cylinder from a 1972 MGB. Had to get an adapter to get it to hook up properly, but seems to be working fine. Good to know someone actually has them available now.
