JT I'm glad I have the Vitesse waiting in the wings
Anyway a little update:
Well I took it to Colin today as I wanted him to have a drive, going around some bends at 50, I felt that she wanted to turn the rear end (if you know what I mean).
After Colin had set up the mixture and she idles so much better, as before she seemed quite fast. While he was doing that he noticed that the spindle for the front carb was opening earlier than the rear carb. So he adjusted so they open at the same time. She seems a lot smoother than before. And a little nippier.
We went for a drive and Colin could feel what I was saying about the rear end, so advised I check all the nut's and bolts first. Also thought I would mention I haven't fitted the rear arb yet, so I think this will go on at the same time.
I also thought that the clutch pedal was going down too far
, it seemed to change forward gears ok, but reverse sometimes ok and other times different sounds.
Today I checked all my fluids and happy to report no leaks or losses of fluid. When I went to check the clutch fluid level I noticed that the cap was well broken, so swapped it for one from my wife's old mgf clutch master bottle. As the one of the Vitesse and my old clutch master wouldn't fit.
Colin wondered whether the push rod on the slave isn't the right length. And I wondered if anyone knew whether there are different lengths available.
