Is there any or throw away Master & slave ?
Lots available, JAE, SJ ETC, it's a very common kit. Be careful to check your slave and master bore for wear though as 9 times out of 10 it's the bore that's screwed requiring a sleeve or new master/slave, both of which are available and in some cases cheaper than sleeving

If you are going to do your clutch master there is a Wilwood drop in replacement for your Girling MC. It's identical to the Girling unit but you will want to reuse the pedal connection rod from your OEM MC.

When I replaced both my MC and slave I used the WIlwood and it is very nice - available from Summit and some other suppliers. I had my slave sleeved in bronze by Sierra Specialties, but they are now retired. There are several sleeving services available - Whitepost is one on the east coast and Karp's is one on the west coast. The other thing to bear in mind is bleeding the clutch hydraulics can be challenging. I use a Motive pressure bleeder now and it works like a charm. I have also has good luck using a MityVac. Here is a description of the Wilwood clutch MC at this website:

Pre-'98 V8's used a 5/8" bore master similar to the 4-cylinder, the .625 version listed above would be appropriate. Later cars used a very different master with no reservoir. I would recommend calling JAE.
