Hi Mike,
The Westfield standard Master cylinder might be the go at 135 UK pounds. They also do an AP M/C for heaps more.

I used a second hand Westfield M/C picked up on eBay. A straight fit on my S4 after having it sleeved with S.S.
Cheers,
Colin.

There's also datsun 1200 master, should work with lhd & rhd. 76-80 spitfire for rhd but has sloping res, but fine for going to remote res.

I am interested as well. I thought maybe we could do a dual setup like on a 26R.

I bought an AP Racing tandem m/c which is, I understand, a part made for Caterham. It has the same bore as the original so pedal pressure and travel is not affected.
