Nice new clutch fitted, not easy in a single garage.....
OSF road spring replaced and suspension overhauled. (not easy) :-)
All ready now for this seasons shows and days out.
the old girl had her annual birthday test and boats a new MOT! hurrah. performed well until I picked dit up after test..started and ran O for 1 min then well down on power .no acceleration .choke made little difference. getting slowly up to speed got a couple of backfires via exhaust and bit of black smoke. after 4-5 mins driving it suddenly found its 'legs' and started driving normally.sheesh .
Hello all. I think I must have a stuck clutch. The clutch was new last April, but has been standing over winter, and now won't go into gear. I tried jumping it with foot on pedal and brake then starting in gear. But nothing still stuck. Tried warming the engine up and depressing pedal with a length of wood and leaving for a while, still nothing.. Does anyone have any other ideas please..
Hiya all. Would anyone happen to have to have a spare door mirror spring for sale, as my Drivers side mirror has gone floppy.. 75 P6
Steve - did you see my post today (21.1) on the front brake flexi hose fitting - are you able to comment on this. I have begged, stole and borrowed time this weekend to fix this but as usual the little details cause the most time - much appreciated, Simon

Hey Simon,left a comment on there. I hope that helps you.
Last email showed order no 9878, recd 30/8/21, actioned 30/10/21 (I emailed asking for progress), posted 2/11/21. GBP 87.90. Nothing recd here. I post query on FB, they delete it. All phone calls go to voice mail. All they have to do is reply, give me tracking info, something.
Re Air servo piston - many thanks for advice. it seems better no that the new servo housing / diaphragm and spring are fitted.

that's excellent to hear.Brakes feel normal now? I had sticky brakes for ages. I have the dual circuit system on US 2000TC's. Two servos just for fun. I rebuilt those and the rear calipers. Found the problem was sticky front calipers in the end. Replaced the seals and used stainless steel pistons and car feels good as gold now.
Peter: I've posted some remarks to Harvey about the continuing problem that I am having with my current draw. I thought I had tagged you for the conversation, but, I may not have. Thanks,

Might want to say wether it’s for a TC or SC as they’re different. Also, try posting in the wanted section, you’ll get more views there.
