against all stories I've been told I fitted a 0,625" clutch master cylinder on my TR4A in 2016.

With the 0,7" cylinder I had normal pedal way, now the clutch works lovely with the 0,625" cylinder and some more pedal way.


I used a NOS one from 1969, sold als brake cylinder for a Reliant 600/700 - without changing the seals.

To see how long the old seals works I made a brake fluid leak container to set under both master cylinders.

Checked last week everythink was dry,

checked today I realised flies like brake fluid - and I'm so sorry for that - die from brake fluid.

If wanted: I have 2 more containers in my workshop, would like to have 10 GBP + 5 GBP for shipping.

To fit you have to unfasten both master cylinders, the container sticks in between the bracket.


If any interest please send me a PM.


Ciao Marco
