Not from the picture sorry, but they usually have numbers on the side.

When I needed to find a replacement for my Cat found there are lots of variations for even just one model of car ! I found some that were similar but the mounting lugs/holes were not in the right position for me. Also the ones I had found did not have any markings on them.

It is using 3 ports the one at the front underneath is connected to the nearside caliper and the 2 nearest the bulkhead one is connected to the front offside caliper and the other is connected to the rear drums via a 3 way tee, MiniMasterCylinderUnderneath.jpg

Is that in a Jago Jeep? If so, then probably Escort fitment yes. Early Fiesta also similar.

Well done Snippy *Your'e A WINNER" Yes its a Jago Jeep and quite possibly either Mark one Escort as the Mark 2 master cylinder is 3 port so I have been told or it could be Capri or Granada or Fiesta will try and find out more if I can.

Either way compared to my Cat's brakes it is horrible and it takes forever to stop!! Going to try adjusting the pedal rod first but ideally it needs to changed from single to dual circuit.

I did think about a remote servo but I have been told that is dangerous as the rear end apparently is prone to stepping out due to its short wheelbase,

I did a full restoration of a Jago about 3 years ago hence me recognising your set up, sold it since but it was a real gem when I finished it. I had a different master cylinder in mine altogether, think it was an old Girling which only had 2 ports, 1 for front, 1 for rear. You could use any master cylinder but you may have to drill new mounting holes and change the actuator rod from the pedal.

Hi Snippy,

Doing mine at the moment apart from some spaghetti wiring to sort out and the brakes I will feel a lot happier as it goes quite well.

Didi you have a brake compensater valve on it to stop the rears from locking up??

There isn't one on here but the brakes are woeful compared to my tiger and other kits I have had but I think I will change it out and have something better probably 3 port (2 for the front and 1 for the back) and dual circuit!!

Many thanks for your help

Hi
Your master cylinder looks awful lot like the original one that came off my car(cat). Brakes was terrible!!!!! 4 ports one blanked off. I fitted a pedal box and individual cylinders for the front and back brakes. From memory I believe that .625 is for the front brakes and .700 is for the rear brakes with actuator fitted to stop the lock up of the back brakes. Sorry for the picture but that was taken during the strip out. You can make out the master cylinder? If you are dead set on replacement on the exact master cylinder, let me know and I will go and dig in the spare parts and get some measurements to you? Almost sure there was no identification on that master cylinder, hence why I changed it to correct set up for 4 pot conversion. Brakes now is awesome!!!! Pulling my face off under hard braking. Love it.
PM me if you need it. Will free up space here😂

Good to know as if the brakes are ok after the m/c change I might be able to leave it out. I was just thinking about preventing rear brake lock up

Thanks Ettienne For your help and advice not going to replace it with the same (so saves the digging lol!!) Going to change for a later 3 port dual circuit.  I have been told Ford Ka none abs might be an option although may have to make an adapter plate for the mounting holes. Mind you the way the post is under our current circumstances it might be a little while before I get one.
I do not mean that disrespectfully to anyone as there are more important things to worry about but I have been waiting for some droplinks for my daily runabout and they are over a week late as an example
