Clutch master and slave parts hiccup


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Am I in a time squeeze... My 91 Esprit SE now closing in on 6 weeks at the repair shop due to parts sourcing problem!

 

The garage changed the clutch hydraulic hose for me; when de-airing the system the master cylinder blew. The repair shop has tried to source a new master and slave, the only supplier apparently SJ sportscars - who after a month or so after the inquery confirmed by e-mail they had the parts. Immediately asking for a quote and order about a week ago, including reminders still no response from SjS. The garage has worked hard in trying to help me (it's a Ferrari garage, the only local joint that are used to handling exotics).

 

The season is soon over and I want my car back! Does anyone know where I can find a reliable supplier for the master (5/8) and slave who can expedite the parts by express to Norway?

 

In addition, the brake pedal light switch needs replacing (SjS said they had this) - and the wiper motor (see separate in relevant thread) which I give up. My car is LHD, there are only RHD motors on the market...

 

But again - the clutch M&S is the critical item - any advice is appreciated!

 

Bregs Atle.

Atle,

 

I bought a 5/8 master and braided hose from SJ a few weeks ago - its really best if you call them via phone as they then place the order IMMEDIATELY and send it out. I also noticed it sometimes takes ages for them to process internet orders - first you order, then you await the quote, then you respond etc etc.

 

If you just call Steve he can ship out to you immediately. I ordered my stuff on a wednesday and got it on friday!

 

They also have the slave, which I'm guessing is in stock.

Thanks Vanja,

 

The garage foreman said he tried to phone SJ but didn't get through (hm.....?) - I will try myself first thing tomorrow morning.

 

Again, thanks for the tip .- this forum is great especially when you are stuck...
