  1. Spot on Chris, it seems that no two M/Cylinders are the same. I had no problem at all bleeding my brakes after fitting a new M/C but after a fast run it pulled on the front brakes. Richard i held my push-rod with big long nose mole grips and turned the nut with a socket and ratchet. As i said it was murder tight. It's probably not been moved since the car was built. Just be "careful" and dont snap it off. May-be someone will be on with a better solution !! Mick.
  2. Hi Richard , welcome to the wonderful world of TR6 Master cylinder problems. As John has said it's the rod protruding from the servo that's adjustable and it is very tight. Gave mine about 1/8 - 3/16 free play as it slowly put the front brakes on as the fluid warmed up and expanded. Loads of stuff on here about this type of problem. Looks like your on the right track good luck. Mick.
  3. Agree with Mike C NGK BUR6ET's. very good plugs . Mick.
  4. + 1 for Bluecol and De-ionised water 50/50 mix. Mick.
  5. Hi Nige , i also have a storm force cover which works very well. It keeps my 6 dry but also allows any dampness to evaporate. Nice fit with 2 ties to secure underneath when it's windy. Good luck with your search. Mick.
  6. Hi Kev , have a look on the Silkaflex website for their range of adhesives. Stuck a huge solar panel to the roof of our motor home ( brackets each end ) still rock solid 8 years later. Mick.
  7. Think Stuart has got that right. Had a few badly made set's of points over the years that did exactly that. Get another set from Martin.
  8. That's interesting, Electronic fuel injection , didn't see that coming.
  9. Morning Keith, when your bleeding the rears does the pedal go to the floor ? As Waldi has mentioned if the lines have drained down it will take a while to get fluid to the back. Mick.
  10. Hi Michael you seem to have a slightly different problem to me. My Master Cylinder operated fine ( not sticking ) But it did have a smaller size mounting flange that allowed the Servo push rod to almost touch the M/C shuttle. Once i figured this out i just backed of the push rod ( which is adjustable ) If your M/C is not returning properly i would send it back to Rimmers . When you get your replacement just make sure you have the correct clearance on the push rod , i used a bit of Plasticine. Then gave it a little bit more lol. Been fine for 1000mls so i re
  11. There was one listed on eBAY last week. Never seen one before. Mick.
  12. Hi Mark, when the brakes locked on last year the AA sent out a patrol 1st to "have a look" Then called for a recovery firm that had a de-mountable flat bed. By the time they got to us ( 4 hours ) the brakes had cooled enough to drive on. I would think the RAC would do the same. Mick.
  13. Hi Roger , had this a few times over the years ( moggy 1000's and fiesta's ) If it's not your tappet adjustment it's probably the valve sticking in the guide, as the engine has been idle for a while it might be just a bit of rust and should clear. Mick
  14. Ha you can chuck them some pennies and they can throw over your nuts.
  15. Hi KOB, have you got a exhaust centre near you ? Our local Merityre kept brass nuts that i needed for a MG.
