Great work, good to see anouther +2 almost back on the road. :D
Keep us posted on the MOT.

Hopefully I will get mine back on the road in the next few months.
The last few stages of the project have gone backwards more than forwards :roll:

Evening all the wee + 2 passed her first MOT in 33 years well chuft just one minor advisory being exhaust slightly blowing from a joint at the manifold .. no big deal but on the way to and from the garage the car was basically undriveable due to having to double clutch tried to bleed it but no joy . You pump the clutch and its fine then 10 seconds later its straight to the floor with no clutch , i guess its air in the system any suggestions Thanks JR

Congrats!

On the clutch after you've bleed it, just wedge the pedal wedged down over night. Often improves matters. Plenty of threads discussing many options to bleed as it's a tricky one.
'73 +2 130/5 RHD, now on the road and very slowly rolling though a "restoration"

Look at the 5th post down, re the wedged down with wood.
