Lotus Elan

Clutch Slave Cylinder repair kit number

PostPost by: jmp » Sun Jul 29, 2012 10:24 am

Is anyone able to confirm the Lucas number given by Brian Buckland for the clutch slave cylinder repair kit? He shows it on the Lucas box as SP2204. My local Factor looking that up has it referring to Brake Calipers. The number for the master cylinder sp1963 is correct in the factors book.
I know they are listed on ebay and Paul Matty has them but I am hoping to pick one up tomorrow if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I posted a chart of the Girling part numbers used on the various Lotus cars of the era a while back, It came in a package of info that I received when I joined Lotus Limited back in the early 90's it has a lot of useful info and most of the Girling part numbers for the cars. Take a look

Excellent thanks Gary,

It confirms what Brian shows in his book so I'll get back to the factors and get them to check their sources.

The Girling repair kit number: SP2019 is for an early Ford Cortina (clutch slave cylinder part number 64067880), this kit is for a .750 (3/4) inch bore slave cylinder. The slave looks the same externally but the bore is smaller. I believe that the bore diameter for the slave used in the Elan and Plus 2 is .8125 (13/16) inch. Both clutch slave cylinders work but I think that the effort with the smaller diameter slave cylinder from the Cortina is higher.

Gary,
Have just ordered a new clutch M/C and S/C for my S4. M/C is 5/8 (.625), S/C is 7/8 (.875).
Regards,
Colin.
