    Not sure what the problem is? Is Nellie a Hawk and powerplant a 164 v6 12v? This is my config running original clutch master cylinder (X1/9) into 164 12v slave seems to work.

    Phil,
    Can you re-engineer the ratio on the clutch/slave/lever end, and leave the tricky inaccesible pedal/master cylinder well alone?
    Assuming the pedal end is healthy and functioning ok, that is?

    Re: Clutch Slave Cylinder

    Update... I have a clutch !....the problem appears to be the push rod between the slave cylinder and the clutch lever arm being too short !.... I have a 166 six speed gearbox with a DMF, a Tilton 7/8" MC, I am using the LB selector system, in doing this you need to use a 156 slave cylinder mounting bracket....everything looks good so far. But what I didn't notice was when installing the slave cylinder the push rod did not go very far into the slave cylinder thus it didn't have full travel...... So I made a longer push rod (about 15mm longer) fitted it all up and I now have enough travel to disengage the clutch.

    hope someone finds this useful in the future...... Almost threw the towel in...

    So took Nellie for a run and found that the engine loses throttle at 2000rpm...... Did manage to select all six gears tho

    getting there... Slowly

    Phil
