I am sure this question has been asked before and they are no longer available but I have jut noticed that my servo tank is cracked on the top - not leaking though. Did anyone ever find a replacement that fits. I doubt if I can ever find a glue that will be good enough to effect a repair.

Iirc it’s Rialto. They do pop up on eBay from time to time.

Yep, I need to stock up - are they Ford or economy Reliants?

Edit - thanks Steve :D

TR7/Bedford CF2 looks like it would fit but has the smaller cap without a level sensor.

I saw them Jim but are the outlets in the same position - level sensor and capacity of no interest to me

Took this photo of a label under the tank screw - not sure if it is for the tank or the whole unit

That brake fluid reservoir looks identical to what was fitted to economy Reliants fitted with dual circuit brakes (eg. approx 1977 onwards Reliant Robin and Rialto).
