    Carp (sp)

    So...rebuilt the clutch slave. Pedal odd, in that sometimes perfect, sometimes two strokes to get pedal. Ah HA! Three year old "new" master from one of the usual suppliers.
    Ordered two kits, first rebuilt the original, installed and bled, perfect every time.

    Popped open the new, shiny one...no way.
    Innards are different. Main cup originally was flat bottom, fit against piston...new one has a peg on the end of the piston to fit the cup with a hole in it onto.

    Suppliers have (as of now) no idea.

    However, MGB upgraded, Mini (post 85) have what looks right:

    for a Mini, 1985 and newer. Not sure of bore.

    C20526#SK Seal Kit Repair


    Research. Lots of photos to supplier, discussions with the manufacturer.

    Upgraded, uprated, master. Uses the parts shown in first posting, apparently.

    Next catalog will show these pars as an option. Apparently, upgrading your old master with these parts is the way to go.

    I'll let y'all know when they get here and how it works.
