Hi Brad,
Off work today sick with a stinking cold - had to go to bed at 8pm  yesterday 
as I was too tired to stand up.
I've just been through a series of clutch issues and replaced everything  
before pulling the engine.  Things to try are using an extended clutch push  rod 
(it can help you get enough clutch travel even with poor hydraulics).   The 
slave on the early minis is much the same as the spridgets (but you might  need 
to check this).  Stay away from silicone brake fluid.  Fit a  rigid pipe from 
the slave bleed long enough to appear in the engine bay and then  put a 
fitting on it so you bleed from this point.
Hope you can sort this before LOTO.

I wish,  I already put a nut in the slave cup, to lengthen the clevis. No joy
What  is the real pisser, is that this master DID work, for about two  days,

slave. I buy a slave, and it STILL won't F'n work. Damn near $400,  for
