This is the kit I would fit - a top quality Borg & Beck clutch, along with our tried-and-tested OEM-Q slave cylinder:

We've sold a lot of these to both trade and retail customers, and by and large they seem to do the job and last well.

Today the clutch pedal went all the way down. From what Iíve read it seems to be the slave....
From what Iíve read here itís advisable to change both clutch, slave and master at the same time right?

Also, I would like to hear some opinions about Luk Repset Pro kit but also about genuine Land Rover clutch (URB500070) and AP clutch, sourcing both cylinders separately, as I read Brian talking about these clutches on one post and they seem considerably cheaper to my budget!!

Thank you in advance everyone!!
Cheers from Portugal!

Hi Antonio, apart from the clutch pedal going to the floor, what else makes you think the clutch has failed? Did you find any fluids below the bell housing?

Hi planenut!

I couldn't have a look at the bell housing, but the guys that came see my car tried to fill the master to check if there was any leak or whatsoever, but they concluded that the master was good, so the problem would be related to the slave.
So, once someone has to get the job done and get to the bell housing I thought it might be a good idea to change it all and avoid any related problems in a near future.

UPDATE: just ordered the kit + master + differential seals from DMGRS. Hoping next month to have the girl running the roads again

I am the one to thank you guys!!
This group as always been of a big help since I own my 75. It is not yet as I would like it to be, but has seen a big improvement since I bought it about 2 years ago here in Portugal And as you may understand, there aren't much Rover experts here...

Up next is getting the hood and front bumper painted, fix the driver's seat leather, door cards, headliner and a have a remap done as well... That kind of maintenance that is constantly emptying my wallet hahaha
