It's a TC steering wheel with a new cover. It was a pain to fit!
Well it looks like you mastered it well! ImageImage

Finally sorted the blowing exhaust on Tara, amazingly the nuts on the downpipes all came off without snapping

Barry had supplied me with the sealing rings and that's one job done.

Unfortunatly I still have no gears, I bled the slave cylinder and have some feel but its still not working,

I will wait until I can get someone to operate the clutch and see what's happening/not happening!

Not a great deal. Another new radio from the stash so now we have FM and MP3 and cassette capability.
This is the third one in a year! Which is a bad advert for a radio man!
Also a good clean in readiness for a show at Stoneyhurst show near Skipton tomorrow. Weather permitting but forecast is reasonable! T

Unstuck the clutch!

As mentioned, up on jack stands, in 4th and accelerated with the clutch pedal depressed and ping! Also wax oiled under the front wings etc

Mot here we come

Then its a case of painting or not painting in time for the NEC....

Next few weeks will decide on that

Glad it worked!

My Mk2 would do it all the time, two weeks in a dry barn was enough- Mud never did, even when standing outside for months on end.
