Although I am not a "Plus Two" person I believe the earlier cars had a Girling MK2A and from about 1972 had the later MK2B.
I also believe the Federal cars had two servos but not sure if the same MK2A & B's servos were fitted.

Hi

From the Parts Manual, not sure if it helps but there are part numbers and a change-over chassis point.

Hi, if the original Girling Servo is missing or not rebuildable (corroded castings etc), most folk fit a Lockheed remote servo. This needs to be a high gain servo (about 3:1 boost ratio). An alternative is to delete the servo altogether. Lots of posts on this forum on all of the above if you endulge in some search time.

Regards
Gerry
