Girling brake servo

    Hello
    I have acquired A 1966 Sunbeam Alpine. You guys helped me on my soft top. And for that I thank you. Now this came with a Girling brake servo. It was not attached. But I have found where it goes. Now for the problem. How it hooks up? Any where I could look for one already hooked up?
    Thanks Richard
    PS is there a divice that I could hold in my hand and wave over the car and all the parts would appear in the correct place and work perfectly? I need one

    Are you sure that servo is good? Many have been removed as they fail over the years-sometimes with spectacular results!
    Do you hear brake fluid sloshing around if you shake the servo unit?

    I have not shaken it.
    Is the master cylinder for the servo and a regular master cylinder the same. As I have a very hard peddle that travels about 1” or a little more. I adjusted the rear brakes and it does stop better
