I'm with mrflibbles, a soft powder blue (similar to Datto 180B colour) with an ivory white roof & cream leather or velour interior.

Really? That last post was a year and a half ago? Where does the time go?

Well, Dobby got into the shed a couple of months ago. I get a few hours here and there to do a bit.
Pulled the non functioning clutch master cylinder out. It was full of gunge of course. Put it back together with new parts, but still no go. Its non original, and the piston requires a short, grooved primary cup. So I've fitted a shorter piston from another kit. I will try it tomorrow.
Also,

Its good to check the brake lines. The flexi one had been rubbing on the hanbrake linkage. It was wrapped with gaffa tape!
The copper line had a kink, so had a new one made. They have to be steel now, by law. Strange, the old one was still pliable, and probably fine, apart from the kink. I didn't want it splitting.
All good fun.
Cheers, Matt.

does the flex line have the same strange threads as a bellett ? If so where did you get it made

Glenn,I had new ones made for the Wasp. Any brake and clutch specialist should be able to do it. If not Pirtek, or any similar hydraulic company could do it.

thanks
In the distant past i tried to get hoses made and the reply was the threads are non standard and the fittings have to be custom made.

The hose was made by ACT brake service, a long term old school buisness. They made it by machining the end and cutting the threads by hand. This is because it has a mixture of metric and UNF threads! Cost $43. Pretty good I reckon.
Male end is 10x1 european (metric).Female is 10x1.25 and 5/8 unf.
Tube has 3/8x24 UNF nuts.
Bleed screws are UNF, but now a 10mm spanner fits at least.
Total cost 71.90.
Cheers, Matt
