thanks to daytona for the temp sensor and i decided to come home early today and fit the sensor.
i had to remove the battery to replace it and now the temp gauge works ok, but only climbs to 70, i could live with
that. i then removed the battery tray to see where the brake fiuld was leaking from.
it is the flexly hose coming of the slave clyinder, i got my son to press in the clutch peltal and i could see fuild coming out of the pipe.
l need to replace that pipe, or i could do a temperary repair until i get a new one.
