Vacuum modulator for se6 automatic gearbox

Sorry Laters,
Just remembered that Peter from Southport still has it, we had it for sale on the Auto jumble at Curborough last August, but he isn't back in the UK until the end of April

The two piston in question have...

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe
