Clutch has been playing up more and more recently, losing pressure when depressed for extended periods, so took decision to take apart master cylinder. Low and behold, white plastic retainer clip inside, broken and not keeping pressure on rubber seal and therefore allowing fluid to return. Not the correct technical names etc, but hopefully people understand what I mean.
Then had the challenge of finding a replacement on line - looks like a Morris Marina/Ital seal kit has what I need - should find out in a few days.
Joys of modified motors :?

A picture paints a thousand words;
Broken clip/spring retainer on left, new one on right

Should go back together & solve pressure problem, as long as I use the new bits on the right! :)

Oh ma,heed! Took some amount of attempts to get sorted, couldn't believe the amount of "bits" in the master cylinder that were clogging it up, but seem to have a working clutch - happy Jimbo & Mabel :D
What will be next?.......

At least I now know what internals I have in this rather nondescript master cylinder - which I hope I'll not need to reorder for some time :!:

Mabel getting a thorough clean up after the 668 mile round trip to Pateley Bridge. She's patiently waiting for delivery of new grille mesh, to allow a bit more air through to radiator & also new wiper wheel boxes & n/s wiper arm & blade, to replace worn ones, that allowed n/side wiper arm etc, to "fly off" on A1 near Morpeth ! :D
