unfortunately series 2 models have the alloy brake cylinders so are near on impossible to find hence the need to fix my damaged one or as you said i could have bought a replacement quite easily

Give Past Parts a call, they might be able to help or can recondition your wheel cylinders. Failing that I might have one here from some old Morris Oxford MO brake parts. I think that part is the same.
