TR3A Girling brake and clutch items

Recommended Posts

Hello,

for a complete rebuild of the hydraulic brake and clutch system, I am looking for genuine original nos Girling items. Can someone give me an advice where I can ask for? I need both master cylinders and the slave clutch cylinder in aluminium, repair set for the master cylinder, repair set for the calipers type B, wheel cylinders for the 9" rear brake system etc. Many thanks for any information.

Best regards

John

Hi John,

I can’t help with these items and I don’t know who can.

However, if the rubber components are NOS, won’t they be ‘past their best’?

Hello David,

Thank you for your reply. My experience over the last 25 year was that, if these items where strored properly, they work really smoothly and without any leakage.

Best regards

John

I repaired my hydraulics many times until I found a specialist company. They relined my originals with a stainless steel lining and I had no more problems.

There is a forum member who cut the old and new master cylinders into sections and microscopically surveyed the surface. The new ones were very rough compared with the old genuine Girling.

I have no connection except a very satisfied customer. Past Parts contact restore@pastparts.co.uk   01284 750729

Once they have done it you can give up on the hydraulics and carry on worrying about adjusting the handbrake instead, as I do.

Good luck Richard & B.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your replies. Because the original hydraulic items are in a general good condition, I would like to save them. So I will contact Past Parts shortly and will let you know by time the results.

Best regards

John
