Lotus Elan

Clutch slave

PostPost by: lightwait26 » Wed Sep 25, 2019 12:07 am

I have a seeping clutch slave. Not being a rebuild fan, I have noticed that many advertised replacements are not Girling.

Can anyone share experiences with current replacements, good or bad?

I've used one from British Parts NW on a couple cars and no issues.

That link is incorrect, it is listing a .750 (3/4") and that is for a MK1 Cortina.
The correct one for an Elan 7/8"

You are correct (although I have used that one two Elans).

This should be the correct one, but from a different vendor. The size is not listed though.

Subtract the VAT and add shipping.

Good price and that's where i bought one for my Elan Sprint a few years ago.
No problem and a good product
