Apparently the master cylinders can be tricky to find, but check with the spares custodians at Heinkel-trojan club.

I have reconditioned slave cylinders but not so sure about a master cylinder till I have had a look and see what state they are in. Some will clean up, most want an insert. If you have or are offered a Girling type master cylinder they have no ready replacement parts. Stick to ATE.

Hi All, can you sent me a pm on the reconditioned slave cylinders? I might have some more wishes, your name keep pupping up every time ;-)

Try Nigel at Contract Auto Engineering near Birmingham, Englandshire. He'll sleeve them with stainless at a very reasonable rate. He did all my Honda S800 hydraulics. Top bloke, top service, reasonable prices.
He'll also make up stainless brake pistons
