#1 Master Cylinder Aluminium Tags

Post by Philk » Sat Nov 17, 2018 8:52 am

Hi - does anyone know a source for the Dunlop Aluminium Brake and Clutch Master Cylinder tags as shown on the Factory Fit thread? I need the VBM 4705 and 4706 variants plus whatever the number was the for Clutch Master Cylinder.

Many thanks!

Hello,

I have checked the Internet (primarly Ebay) daily during the past six years -- first during a search for OEM parts for my 1961 E-type and now as a hobby.

I have not seen a set (or even one) of these aluminum tags offered in at least four years. Perhaps once a year I will see a tag mounted to a refurbished cylinder to enhance its value.

Several years ago I also contacted a fabricator of metal Jaguar parts (screws, brackets, etc.) to ask if he would be interested in reproducing these tags -- even provided photos.
- He did not see a market that would warrant tooling up for these items.

So -- sorry to say that I am hot hopeful.

If anyone has a dimensioned sketch and photos I would be happy to see if I can get them CNC cut at work....
