Re: Clutch bearing (?) squeak

Ah ok, I see. I do have an adjustable pushrod at the slave end - I put it in and it seemed to work so I have never fiddled with it. I bought the Modern Driveline slave cylinder on impulse because I also bought my T5 from them. Looks just like the first photo here: https://www.moderndriveline.com/Tec...

Re: Clutch bearing (?) squeak

thanks for all your responses chaps. Kev - I've got a hydraulic external slave. Never set one of these up before so it is probably needing adjustment, and your suggestion is probably the easiest place to start. I guess I need to adjust it so there's a slight 'pre-load' on the lever when there's noth...

Clutch bearing (?) squeak

Hi all, For most of its life, my car has had a high-pitched squeal when the clutch is engaged and the car is warm. The noise immediately goes away when even just light pressure is applied to the clutch pedal. The noise is present whether the car is in neutral or driving and the clutch is engaged. I ...

Re: Which fire extinguisher

Got any photos Phil? All the plumbed-in systems I see seem to be over £500 - I guess thats because they're motorsport-approved.

Re: Which fire extinguisher

Well I guess lining of the engine bay with ally may slightly inhibit combustion of the body, but probably not much. So perhaps, given the speed at which these could go up, a plumbed-in CO2 system may be the best bet. Activated from the passenger compartment for speed, no need to lift the bonnet and ...

Re: Which fire extinguisher

There was an old discussion on this forum a few years ago, where Roger King was basically saying that AFF foam extinguishers would be the best thing to carry. So that's what I bought - though I got a 2 litre one which I think is too big and will go in the garage - I'll get a 1 or 1.5 litre one. That...

Re: Lucas L542 rubbers

Thanks for the replies guys and for checking your stores Migge!
Gerry doesn't have a source for these on their own. I asked a few places, and will probably have to get some from the US.

Re: Cranleigh Classic - August

Thanks again Peter! I didn't get home very successfully unfortunately. Electrical fault within a few miles of Cranleigh caused the engine to die, and I cruised to a halt in a country lane outside a house. After 10 minutes of me and my passenger scratching our heads, two pre-war MGs and an MG midget ...

Re: Lucas L542 rubbers

Thanks guys - I'll check cobra restorers out. Though I realised I should ask Gerry too - he may have spares.
