Hi,
As you've probably guessed, original master cylinders in decent condition are hard to come by.
Apparently, the MC from a Granada can be fitted, have a look at Peter's build thread.

Replacement items are still available to buy new.

Colin you could always get your servo refurbished mate. Think there are a few companies who offer this and you get to keep the original....if you still have it of course ?

Check out this thread on here a while back with details of this....

I have a spare master cylinder if you are having trouble finding one. I can't guarantee how good the seals are as its off a 33 years old car, so would benefit from having a seal kit fitted to be on the safe side.
