I did take the car for an 8 mile run and the clutch worked just fine but will the fluid stay in the system?
Well, I have all the connections as tight as I can get them. I have cleaned them off and then left some kitchen towel tissue around them to see if there's any seepage visible in a day or so.

Meanwhile, there is visible leakage from the sump plug area too!!
Now actually I don't think it's the sump plug itself especially as I have PTFE round it.
I think there may be a problem with the brazing on the threaded insert that the sump plug goes in to.
I could do without that really.
Having had enough of that though I then ventured inside the car to try and get the overdrive switch on top of the gear lever fitted properly. It just won't sit down as it should though so now I know why I have seen a fair few cars with insulation tape holding the switch on!
I thought a combination of pulling the wiring down the gear lever and pressing the switch into place would sort it out but no matter what I do I can't get it to co-operate. Thoughts of a normal gearknob and wiring another switch start to come to mind or buying a different type altogether as used to be fitted to works cars but that seems a bit drastic right at the moment.
Did I mention the heater still doesn't work?
Oh, and how about the fact that the weld broke on the bonnet stay so it went further forward than it should and marked the paint on the bonnet and slam panel?
Don't you just love classic cars?
