View Full Version : Brake,servo,brake/clutch,master,cylinders

Hello all, I am building an SRV8 from scratch (unfinished project) which I intend to fit with either a Chevy or a Windsor 351. I have already fitted four pot jag calipers to the front, and intend to use the calipers (after overhaul) which were originally fitted to the 5.3 jag at the rear. My questions are, does anybody out there have any idea which servo should be fitted (type, part no, etc) ? Also could anybody also please give me an indication regarding the bore and part numbers of the master cylinders to be used ( brake and clutch, again type, part numbers etc would be great). Any information gratefully received and very much appreciated. All the best Andrew L.

Happy Jim

Single master cylinder for that setup would be a Girling 0.75" job, not sure which one would suit you as I don't know the SR that well. Servo.....no idea sorry.

It would be a help if you knew the age of your chassis as they differ slightly. From memory, depending on which bulkhead style you have i.e: flat or an angled wedge welded in you have several choices. Morris Ital, and Rover SD1 servos were fitted on earlier models and Escort Mk4 and 5 to the later ones with the upward slanted insert. Do you have a set of pedals (they were very short) with your kit. These might give you a clue. If you are starting from scratch, I would look to make longer travel pedals with a better pivot angle. Madgwick Cars in Selsey near Chichester are still doing the kits as far as I am aware.

Can't help with the sizes, but by the time you factored in availability of parts, or costs of refurbing old master cylinders, the new brake pedal kits from the likes of merlin Motorsport might well be worth a look...
