FTE in Germany makes the cylinder. THe part number is in the end of the "braided brake hoses thread". Actually, read that whole thread as it ends up becoming a discussion about the quality of the booster and master cylinder and will probably answer your question.

Michael, don't know the reason for your question; but when looking, I came across a Lotus Sport master cylinder: http://www.bell-colvill.co.uk/LotusShop/Details.asp?Id=ALS1J6010F Model number is self-explanatory. They don't specify if it's for the S1, S2, or both.

And I think this is the post to which ITA66 is referring: http://elisetalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=972237&postcount=33

BTW, there's one for sale on eBay.

The closest thing I can find to that title is "Braided brake lines, Anyone done it?"... and that one doesn't actually give up the FTE part number. :(

Thanks, Kris.... but I'm trying to spend less than what the dealer wants for a new one. -poke-

Yup, you are right, the thread doesnt actually give the part#. Below is from the return email I got from FTE.

I have discussed the matter with our engineers at FTE Germany and would like to answer you as follows.

The Lotus brake master cylinder is our part no. H23967.0.1. The bore size is 23.81.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer you a cylinder with a larger bore as we do not have any suitable parts in our product range which would fit.


Does that help?

Only websites I could find listed that part number were foreign. Does not look good, Michael. BTW, have you checked lotusgarage.com. Not sure how prices compare; I know they're a dealer, so YMMV. FWIW, their price is $121.89 (+shipping, I'm sure).

Master replacement

Why do you need a new master cylinder? Did some one use silicone brake fluid? The posting ITA66 referred you to lists cars using the same part number. These were Euro cars but some chance to cross to dometic VWs.

That's actually not a bad price for a good tandem brake master cylinder. A tandem Girling MC is almost $300

I can get it from a Lotus dealer for $130. The only brake fluid that I've used is Motul 600. I was just looking for another source to get it for less, --not looking for a different size.

Thanks for the part number, though! I'm gonna try to source it.
