Paul - have you looked at your post in the Elite/Eclat/Excel section recently?! 😉

Pete

No - I'd forgotten I put it there!

I wonder whether one of the Japanese M/C's would be equivalent. Believe they were inclined to copy Girling over these years, would be out there in numbers.

Do you have a photo of the type you're looking for?

I can't find any photos of it but it's rectangular and the two ports that fit into the master cylinder are different sizes.

I think that is the same as the Type 83 Series 2 Elite/Eclat ('80 - '82).  I may have one of those as well!  I bought a Series 2 servo that turned out to be scrap but I may still have the reservoir - I'll have a look later this morning.

I've got one - 74470134.  It will need a float assembly - one of the terminals has broken off - but the rest looks good; even the seals look useable.

I like the clevis pin/R-clip arrangement on Dave's reservoir - much better than the original roll pins.

Couple of photos of it - I've given it a bit of a clean:
