I finished fitting the new section of exhaust after making new support brackets. Tidied things up and checked the levels and lights etc ready for the dreaded MOT on Monday.

Following a bit of a clean and tidy up she is going up for sale.

Yes I know I will, but we have to move on. SWMBO doesn't realise that once I get the garden and new workshop sorted out I will likely be in the market for some kind of chassis up rebuild. Maybe a Series 3 88". I had one before that was nearing completion, but I had to sell it on as we were moving house and I couldn't accommodate it at the time.

Thought I would change the clutch slave cylinder today - not that difficult right? Wrong! It is in the most ridiculous place, and I had to get Henry up in the air by a fair amount just to get underneath it. I then spent a very pleasant couple of hours trying to get the old cylinder off without any success. The union to the cylinder must be welded on I think - there was no way I could get it to move - whatever I tried it would not crack. I have WD40'd it up and left it to see if it will soak a little bit of flexibility into the job. I am a little annoyed as I couldn't find my set of long AF spanners - nothing else really reaches with any comfort and they are my go to set when the brown stuff hits the whirly thing. But sadly not today. I guess tomorrow is going to be a thorough going through of the garage and all the sheds to see if I can find them.
I ordered a new pipe for the cylinder from Bearmach as I think I'm going to have to cut the pipe to get the cylinder out.
Old Land Rovers eh?

Good luck with the MOT knappster.

I took the plunge and changed the transmission oil and internal filter on Dorris the Disco's auto box. The old stuff came out a lovely shade of BROWN. On the plus side, the sump magnet only had some light sludge on it - no nasty bits of metal.

I am on call this week so have to stick around the house during the evenings. As such, I decided to re-stick the headlining in Henry tonite. Nice easy job - for once it went nice and smoothly Smile 1 hour - job done!

Paul, what adhesive did you use to stick the headlining in place?

I used Evostick contact adhesive spray - red & white can. Great nozzle for even but wide spray pattern.
