Identifying rear slave cylinder

Post by Tim036 » Wed May 18, 2011 8:13 am

i need to and need confirmation as to how many bolts hold it on. My suppliers only have the sort with two bolts holding it on.

The one I've seen have 4 bolts.

So any thoughts anyone ?

Good supplier is also of interest !

Tim,

OE is four bolts

Quite a few peeps have resorted to the two bolt version.

The bolts holding it in place are far less important than the cylinder bores. These must be the same or a serious braking imbalance will result.

Rear cylinder bore is 7/8 of an inch.
Front cylinder bore is 1 and 1/8 of an inch.

With just 2 bolts does it align ok ?

Hey Tim,
i am from Germany and in search of all four wheel brake cylinders for my Mahindra CJ340, construction year 1990. Would you please give me more information about the cylinders your supplier offers to you? Do you have a name or number of the manufacturer? How much they cost?

Thanxx
Mike

Series Land rover will fit just a small mod to the brake plate, for the holes and a bit of fileing for the body, but very easy to do and a hell of a lot cheaper than OE, if you can even find a supplier for OE.

Seen them on Ebay, but Series bits are available from most Factors.
I think it was Chris or one of our other members that has done the convertion recently.

At last I found a LanRover Series expert !

Series 1 86 inch and 88 inch used 1 inch on the Rear and 1 1/4 inch on the Front and embossed on the underside of the slave cylinder was a '1' for the rears and '1 1/4' on the front !

This ran for the short wheel base Series 2 also 2A. And Series 3 upto 1980.....

Is this the mythical Unicorn like slave cylinders that can be made to fit onto our beloved Mahindrii Brave, Cheif and Stockmen ???

After protracted negotiations Paddocks of http://www.paddockspares.com shipped me one of these two part numbers

Made by Lockheed 'Delphi' series

243302D

243303D

I've no idea if they are correct or not, I suspect 243302D is.

This email/thread may help others in the distant future.

As soon as I have further information positive or negative, I'll update here.

Not sure if the circular bit will go in the hole OK. It about 1/8th inch not centred on the axis of the Cylinder.

Anyone know of a source for rubbers for the cylinder that came off it. Might try refurbishing it.

Its part number is TVS Girling 1678 or 1670 or 1679 IR the last digit is tricky to figure out.
