I would give Darren a ring at MGFnTFBITZ in Glossop.
They have been my go to since I had them recommended shortly after I bought the car & like many on here have found them to be everything you would want in a supplier.
Let’s start with an encyclopaedic knowledge of our cars, an almost impossibly comprehensive stock - - - - - and so it goes.
I’ve visited several times & there has been nothing dumped on an oily floor. Everything has a place & the workshop is as clean & tidy as the rest of the place.
But at the end of the day the choice is yours.

+ 1. Ive not visited them in person but wow what they dont know about our cars isnt worth knowing.
Ive spent hundreds with 'Bitz on new and 2nd hand parts for 2x TFs. Other suppliers are available and I have no links to them other than that of a highly satisfied customer.

You can have a worn alloy master cylinder repaired, basically the bore is enlarged and a stainless steel sleeve of the correct diameter is inserted, this should last a lifetime.

Very true, but what about the pressure seals on the plunger, those need to be replaced, you have to assume that they are perished.

Obviously the seals would be replaced, from those in a kit or if such a kit isn't available, by using seals purchased individually from a brake specialist.

According to an ex-Rover Chassis Engeering Director, who was involved with the MGTF LE500, the brake master cylinder used on the LE500 is the same as the brake master cylinder used on the MG Rover TFs. So, the brake master cylinders that E-car parts are selling are SJC000150 and will work on the TF.

There is a distinct possibility that if these fit a tf as well as an LE500 then an f should be a creditable third place, more research required.
Many interesting & surprising things come in collapsing cardboard boxes, I’ve been to enough auto jumbles to have first hand experience & I’ve been in danger of loosing the shirt off my back on more than one memorable occasion, by knee jerk enthusiasm.
I’m always the one with the desire to add to my burgeoning collection of new old stock items & so as a point of interest I tried to see if the vendor had any other MG gems & other than finding he/she was away for a few days, there didn’t seem to be anything on offer on the eBay site.
My track record isn’t the finest when it comes to teasing out eBay information but I would council caution until other information comes to light.
There’s enough in that box to go around & if this vendor has so many then the likelihood is that most of the big players will have scooped their wants.
Just a thought.
