Hydraulic Clutch

As previously posted the Sumo is design to work with a cable operated clutch as this connects to the Sierra pedal box. Problem is that the clutch is designed for hydraulic which makes a cables operated clutch stiff and unreliable. So the pedal box has been modified and fitted with a clutch cylinder. Here you see the pedal box and master cylinder under the dash

 And here's the fluid reservoir and the fluid line down the bulkhead to the slave cylinder
All quite straightforward to fit - thanks Tony for supplying the mod and parts

I now need to bleed the whole system as nothing happens when I press the clutch pedal - really hope it's an airlock...;-)
