Oh my god what can I say, I'm totally lost for words with joy
. Picked the car up this evening with the new clutch fitted and my back brakes sorted and wow its like a brand new car
. All the noises from the gearbox have gone, every gear is silky smooth to engage with no fighting at all, just feels like new
. Even the reverse crunching has gone, perfect everytime. I'm so totally amazed that all my troubles have been down to just a broken clutch. I guess some of the smoothness is also down to me flushing the gearbox 4 weeks ago and fitting a new master slave cylinder as well
Thanks everyone for their support and its nice to see a happy end to a thread

Now all I need to do is the...
needs a backbox (got a nasty, nasty cherry bomb fitted, oddly very quite though)
small muffler (hopefully next),
small 5p hole to weld under car,
rocker cover gasket (in the post)
front wish bone on one of the sides rubber is worn (learnt this today, no knocking though)
and a service
and she will be one awesome car
