You will all be pleased to know that the clutch master is now repaired and in perfect operating condition. As EOW is a 1.9 pug engine with the relevant slave cylinder it might be possible if I ever needed to fit a different slave, but all this is really me just thinking out loud, and being reluctant to pay Simons prices (postage) but it does appear that there is no option if I ever need a new master cylinder. but, and I am being seriouse for a change!" as it appears there are plenty of the larger bore cylinders is it possible to press a machined tube into the bore to make it the correct diameter? the holes for the fluid could be drilled ounce in position!!! I had a look ont interweb and it appears that these tubes can be obtained and as a larger diameter bore master cylinder can be found for around £25 it would work out a cheap alternative! again me thinking out loud but as I now have a larger master it is something I will experiment on just for the hell of it.. Advice / ideas more than welcome.

Agreed... Will hang onto it as i got it as an experiment and it has the same mountings.  You never know,  if my slave goes I'll get the matching one. LOL

You can't Terry.  The 1.6 and 2.2 slave cylinders are totally different.  The 1.6 (or Simca/Bagheera/Rancho etc.) slave cylinders are bolted to the bell housing casing with two 8mm bolts, whilst the 2.2 slave has no flanges where bolts could be fitted.  It is purely cylindrical and slid into a circular casting and held in place with a large circlip.

For information a 1.6 slave has a 25.4mm bore and the 2.2 slave has a 28.6mm bore.

P.S. I have plenty of these circlips if any 2.2 owners needs one: £1

To make it more complex Roll Eyes
You say it has 7 curved vanes but this alloy impeller has 8 and are not curved..

Regards Herman

I have seen the metal 8-vane impellers but not the alloy one, however, as they are flat they should be O.K. but to be pedantic, they both have gaps between the vanes and the hub which at low revolutions will allow fluid to pass between them and not get pushed around so reducing the pumping effect at idle or very low revs.  The original 6-vane impellers had the vane go across right to the hub as you can see from my earlier photograph.

What we do know for certain is that the curved 7-vane impeller is no good and any pump fitted with it should not be used. (One exception may be if the pulley is smaller to spin the pump faster, but then it may over-speed at top engine revs and I still don't advise this anyway.)

So the thermostat is coming out and i will test it. But also fill it up and run the engine without thermostat to see if it circulates.
The weather was finally good yesterday, so the thermostat came out. After refilling the coolant until it came out of the vent screw on the hose by the thermostat housing, I started the engine.
In the expansion tank I now could see coolant coming out of the top inlet which vents the thermostat housing. What a relief.  Cheesy
That means that the pump is circulating the coolant and the impeller has not come loose. This was checked without thermostat installed, as suggested by Roy.
Next the replacement thermostat goes in and we try again.

I replaced the thermostat in my 1.6 with this one.

This is opening at 81 C and has automatic air venting to let trapped air out.
It made my coolsystem better.
As far as I know the 2.2 uses the same thermostat according to the manual.
