You might as well get new flex and hard lines too, they are cheap and ez to destroywhen removing. I learned that thehard way and had an extra week ofdowntime for it.

In the last day or two I have noticed fluid on the inside of the bulkhead, now (slowly) starting to appear on the drivers floormat. I have not noticed in perceptable change in steering, braking or the clutch. The fluid is relatively thin and brown in color. Am I looking down the barrel of a full fledge master/slave failure that will surely leave me high and dry at the worst possible moment, or do I have a little time? Can this only be the clutch or potentially brake or steering?

Thanks,
Matt

definetley not steering, the fluid is all down int he engine bay, and if the high pressure side goes, you will know it in a hurry. Most likely either clutch or brake. Watch the levels closely. Is either pedal becoming spoungy?

Often the fluid runs down the offending cylinder's pedal giving a strong clue as to which cylinder is ready to let go big time.
Clutch is inconvenient, brakes life threatening

Jeff, at least change the rubber line while you are doing the other parts.. they dry rot over time. But i would do all the lines like stated above... just a few more $$ into the rover pit...lol

My flex hoses have lasted the best part of 20 years
I'm just starting to swap them out now as the MOT inspection man starts to become unhappy about their condition.

Thanks Guys, will do. I am trying to get it back up and running pretty dependable as I bought the SIIa I was looking at a few months back. It is supposed to be loaded in Southampton on Monday, so, since I know it won't be too dependable, hopefully, I can get the D to the point it is!! Land Rovers remind me of the old saying about Jag's, you have to have two cause on is always in need of work! Your right Randy, just a few more $$ in the rover hole! Thanks again guys!

Question Clutch master cylinder leaking...

Hello there...

New does not mean troubleless...
I've a leaking clutch master cylinder on a 2005 D90.
Not a big leak, a small drop each morning on the
front rubber carpet... so the question is:
Should i change the whole cylinder or the
repair kit will do the work properly ?
Any advice about this small repair ?
And finally, who sell this part in the US ?
(STC100410G for Lucas or STC100410 for
other brands, 550732G and 550732 in the
past).

Thanks

Is there no warranty service available for your truck?

The seal kit will probably do it, but why not order a new cyl and rebuild the old as a spare? They are cheap enough that its not really a financial choice.

RN can probably sell you the part, RDS probably has it in stock and won't f*ck up shipping to the DR.

Well Jim, you probably will not believe this but the LR representative
here are so bad in any ways that i dropped a 3 years warranty on this
truck so i d'ont have to deal with those %^$%()&%$#!@ .....

I'll probably follow your advice, change the cylinder and rebuild the
other one.
Just a small question, RN is RoverNorth i presume, who is RDS ?

Thanks

Fluid under clutch pedal

I noticed some fluid under my clutch pedal. It is running down the back of the shaft of the pedal and dripping on the floor. Any thoughts on what it could be?
Thanks

Are you sure it isn't just water? You could have had something spill in your tray below the vents, or have a leaky vent seal.

It is not water, definitely lube or oil of some sort.

Jimmy, is the fix to replace the master cylinder?

I replaced mine (bitch of a job to do) and also bought a kit to rebuild the old one. The bore was good so it really just needed a new seal. The rebuilt one is in a sealed plastic bag back in my Troys box where I'll always have a backup spare handy. These things always fail at the most inconvenient times.

So am I buying the master cylinder clutch and reservoir?

I keep having to replace my clutch master every year and a half or so. What gives??? I'm thinking its either the bushings on the pedal itself thats causing undue wear on the cylinder piston or mabye I didn't adjust that adjustment bolt right. Anyone else have that problem?
