Thanks for your input Peter. As they say, two heads are better than one, and I believe that you are on the right track. My Sonett spare parts catalogue indicates that both the Sonett V-4 and III's used horizontal style Girling masters and two different part #'s are listed (a cable system was used on the Sonett II). Although I do not know what the differences are, part #7313760 was used up to chassis 70500050 (1970 unit #50) and part #7423213 was used from chassis 7050051 to the last Sonett made in 1974. I am guessing that the only difference is that older unit has a different cap (without the reservoir hose nipple), which the newer unit has. My Sonett spare parts catalogue lists different cap part #'s for each unit and a seperate plastic reservoir, which was only used with the later unit. As you indicated, this style of Girling master was used on the 95 & 96 up to the end of 1968 when it was replaced with the final type (Lockheed?) with a round metal can reservoir on top. As I compare the exploded diagrams of the Girling and Lockheed(?) units I note that the internal components are completely different. Which does suggest, as you stated, that the Lockheed and Beck kits may be equivalent and correct for the later clutch master. If this is the case the Beck Arnely listing is incorrect for the Sonett application and all 95 & 96's prior to 1969. I removed the clutch master last night and will add an update later.
