    Brake Shuttle valve

    mike. my 110 had that valve and i had brake problems so i took it out and made 2 small link pipes. may have it somewhere still there is no need to change to a 300 master as 1) its only a pressure differentiate indicator 2) you still got 2 circuits off the master so if 1 fails you still have 1 brake circuit.

    speedo drive gears

    ive got a 1989 110 running 300tdi, r380 gearbox and 1.2 transfer box. speedo was reading faster than going and had 23 teeth so swapped for a blue 20 tooth drive gear. it has brought speedo closer to telling the truth but still showing 11% faster than actually travelling at and also putting 11% more miles on the clock too. any suggestions as dont think there is an alternative or do i need a new speedo head? thanks in advance
  4. could also be the lift pump diaphragm allowing air in so fuel runs back

    Securing lights !

    if you got an alarm fit a pin switch behind headlight trims, if removed alarm is activated. bolts and nyloc nuts but with standard looking heads will confuse most
  9. sounds like back of ignition switch melted/sticking

    clutch slip

    from hunting around i found i have the correct bearing and pushrod. i made 1 clutch up out of the 2 of the same make i have and initial feel is better. cannot get it to slip when trying to pull away with footbrake applied so fingers crossed

    clutch slip

    engine out and measured. pushrod protrudes 25mm out of slave hole. bearing has about 40mm of clearance at rear so does not appear to be binding. old gearbox had pushrod of 95mm length. replacement has 105mm rod. flywheel has no groves or high spots. checked finger height on clutch before removing and bolted to spare flywheel and both same height bearing face to slipper pad approx 35mm many thanks for all your suggestions so far.

    clutch slip

    had a read. interesting but mine is not a stumpy r380. so confused even more. im pulling engine out now so will see. im going to takee slave off and measure rod protrution before splitting and try and measure where bearing sits and see it its restricted
