Default Diy clutch hydraulics fix

Hi All,

Might as well put my pennyworth in. Clutch near the floor, difficulty engaging gears, sound familiar?
another convert to the earls braided hose, bit of a pig to break the connection on the inner wing. If you haven't already get a good set of brake hose spanners (worth their weight!). Followed Bentley manual for bleeding, removed slave cylinder & used a clamp to compress pin all the way in then pressure bled. Also took panel out under steering column to get easy access to pedals, gave them a grease & oil. still a bit sticky so squirted silicone spray into top of master cylinder tube (where it leads off pedal), everything smoothed out nicely after this. then changed trans fluid, Fuchs Titan 75w-80 synthetic MTF.
WOW, talk about a difference & getting better with every drive.
Many thanks to all contributors on this forum, I am merely reinforcing information already on here.
You made me swallow hard & have a go, feels more like a sports car than a tractor now!!

Howard
