The TF rack arrived yesterday, as did the DAB antenna so the car now has a phone and digital radio. Today, rear speakers. I could do the rack today and even the coolant pipes but I will be moving tools up to Gordon's today as the next job is making his car fit for the Le Mans trip and it is LEAKING WATER!

It’ll be interesting to hear your thoughts on the tf steering rack, initially I was a little ambivalent to the change whilst pondering the grazed knuckles, cricked neck & Volterol back. Manoeuvring, particularly in reverse required more recalculation than I would have though, obviously I am now hefted to it to such an extent that the last f I drove felt strange.

Before Gordon's car went to the great b road in the sky, it gave up its mark 2 airbag and the rear tub seal which made an immediate difference to my car. The door rattles just went away. The clutch bleeder arrived so that is on tomorrow's list, together with either fitting a new rack or stripping out the interior for the red leather seats I have coming.

Clutch bled. A litre of fluid pumped through and little improvement so I checked the operating arm which was completely free . The pivot was tight so I took the clevis pin out and lubed it all up. Slightly smoother action but no real over centre feel and a lower pedal than I like. Time to look at the master cylinder clevis and examine it for ovality. First though, I really must finish the low coolant alarm.

So I did. Routed the three wires from the sensor to the buzzer and fuse box through  the grommet under the hood well carpet on the driver's side. I ran the wiring under the carpet and into the fuse box, picking up for the time being on the fuse I put in for the mirrors. Drained off 250 ml and off it went. Good. What I saw in Gordon's engine convinced me that it isn't an optional extra. Tomorrow I might go off for a 600 mile jaunt, once I have removed the door cards.

The gearchange is much improved and there is the hint of an over centre action on the clutch. I have learned how to select the required track on the stereo and have worked out how to get three seats and four  door cards into an MGF.
