    I’ve been a group leader on the past few Litp’s but I’m afraid I’m out for this year due to date clash with a family event😩 I’d rather be at Litp to be honest.🙄

    Winter work.

    I’m yet to get the trolley jack out, but the notebook and pencil are ready for the snagging list. So far, I’m doing engine mounts, speedo sensor, wheel arch liner (if I can find one that’s not extortionate), washer jets, alternator rectifier and anything else I spot while doing that little lot. Like many folks I’ll have to fit it in around other jobs created by the long haired General... 😊

    Brake fluid change.... clutch as well?

    Replace the clutch fluid the same way as the brakes. Open the bleed nipple, drain the fluid, keep the reservoir topped up. In practice, you'll need to pump the pedals, apply pressure to the reservoir, or apply vacuum to the bleed nipple. Any method will work for this job, depending on the equipment you have handy and how many people on hand. I find the vacuum method is the simplest for replacing the fluid. A pressure bleeder may be better for actually bleeding air from the system. Pumping the pedals is a bit fiddly with two people, and a right pain with only one. Simple gravity works for the brakes, but is very slow, not so good for the clutch because the slave cylinder is quite high.

    Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    disable Since you refreshed there has been 1 new post. checking... Dr Hedit Few more small steps: Fitted front wheel arch liners. Rivnuts in the chassis and 5mm stainless hex heads. Figure these are better than cap or button heads that will just collect dirt if I ever actually drive the car. (I said it before anyone else did....). Liner and chassis will be coated in stone chip when having the car painted. Rear louvres fitted. They will need a bit of work before paint Clam catches drilled (they needed another hole putting in them) and fitted. Blurry pic Rear view mirrors fitted. Had to bolt the seat in to check where they needed to be. The look great and are very 'period'. However you can see fuck all out of them

    Brake fluid change.... clutch as well?

    The easiest way to bleed the brakes and clutch is with an Ezi-bleed kit from Halfords or similar. It uses tyre air pressure to pump new fluid into the reservoir as you bleed it out of the slaves. Clutch is the same process as the brakes. Just attach a length of fish tank air tube to the slave valve and open the valve, catch the fluid in a jam jar. I always bleed the clutch first, then the rears, then the front. That ensures the front brakes have the best fluid, they get hot.

    Is it still AD07 and AD08 ?

    I'd go with this if you can fit the fronts ok - but grab them while you can, as AD08R aren't going to be around for long due to EU regs !!! I'm running AD08R on all corners and handles fine, the fronts remove most of the understeer
