LR013017 - Brake master cylinder upgrade?

Post by Thomas Loveridge »

Hi all,

I wanted to ask if anyone has used this master cylinder as an upgrade for the 220 Coupe?
I want to replace mine with a 1" bore from a land rover, I've seen it mentioned a few times but I'm not 100% on what bmc to get and I can't seem to find if this one has a 1" bore or not. I would like to avoid having to modify the original piping if possible.

The specs on Autodoc (https://www.autodoc.co.uk/car-parts/oem/lr013017) for LR013017 gives the bore as 27mm. The 'P' at the end of the part number you have linked to simply denotes that it is a pattern part rather than genuine LR, but I would expect it to be the same.

That's great to know thank you! It was more that I just didn't want to bend the brake hoses to fit the master cylinder with the outlets on the other side. Looks like I'll be getting this one then.

To add I have also used a defender one on mine. However mine is an abs version

It’s quite a tight fit

But works

That's good to know! How would you describe the brake feel now? Are you running the stock calipers as well?

Yes I've seen the TD5 mentioned, I would just like to avoid modifying the lines. If the ABS ones work I'd rather use them.
