  1. Warning light back on , so checked the sensor on the top of the reservoir , lifted the contact plunger and low and behold light went out. The float had come off the rod allowing the circuit to sense low fluid level. Got there in the end !!
  2. Thanks Ian , It seems to have worked 👍. , assume its a reset process ?? Had a good look round and checked for leaks around the pressure switches on the MC , alls good and dry , thanks for the pointer Jonny. Also noticed there is a sensor on top of the fluid reservoir are these problematic ??
  3. Great i will try that tomorrow , see it it works. Yes great service , seem to have a few engines in different stages of build/repair. It was also nice to see mine out the car.
  4. Blimey ten years , that would drive me mad. Notice two sensor on the master cylinder , will have a look at the tomorrow and there is a float in the fluid reservoir that has a sensor , assuming this is all linked the the warning light on the dash ?
  5. Problems solved ! .........new one arrives ! Stutter on rundown was indeed a vacuum pipe leak (pipe missing ) throttle body to WUR. Also had a leak on cylinder four , head nuts retightened , new clutch fork and the missing omega spring fitted. Clutch now operates as it should and does not set me dodgy hip/knee off !! Its running like a dream , top notch GCR ! 😃 Any ideas on the brake warning light staying on (dash) ?? I have checked the fluid level , the brakes were bled 12 weeks ago. Any help would be appreciated
