as the fork travels enough under "soft" pressure it's most likely a bent fork: a new reinforced one on its way from burton (my punk has the stronger pressure plate and clutch by AP, so many say i shouldv'e known this: i didn't!! so now i just need some soothing from you fellas! sandy

If it makes you feel any better my S3 needs its engine out to replace the clutch release bearing.

The good news however is that my motivation is I?ve got a place at the Lotus trackday at Goidwood on 21 April :-)))))

Anybody else on here going (suppose I?ll start a separate thread)

Well Sandy, it's time to take a deep breath, open the toolbox and go for it, cheers, John.
