Hey thats cool, unlike most of the Arab world and most of the Asian world, in fact most of the world in general, we don't hate Americans, we sometimes call them Yanks, mostly we lovingly refer to them as "septic tanks" Old english cockney rhyming slang. No offence intended, if any is taken then

"harden the F--K up". LOL

Thats an austrailian expression invented by a an old Ozzie Icon not famous for his loving and caring ways, often used as a term of endearment intended to encourage the affected party to take a more stoic view of life.

You may be reflecting our jargon, but not our sentiment!
We just use "septics".

Lucky Kiwis - the dateline on one side, "normal world" border on the other.


(....LOL! Alas I'm one to point out the difference between yanks, and yank Foreign Policy. Unfortunately some are to sheltered or naive to understand.)

On RHD cars the cross link bar is notorious for seizing up. If they seize in the up position and you force it the link bar breaks off at the weld so don't force it up either. remove the clevis and then the master cylinder to eliminate the cylinder itself as the problem, which it could be. If still seized you may have to take the whole cross link bracket out to fix it up. That means dash out and steering column out so try the master cylinder first. If you need to do the other thing just ask, I have done it a few times and there are some tricky little bolts that will fuck with your head if you don't know where they are hiding.

With the clutch check the slave on the box as well.

If the car has been sitting the piston can gum or jamb up in the bore.


Probably a good idea to pull of both the master and the slave and either kit them or replace them. Both can be bought new in the US.

You can also get brake parts new fairly easy. Im pretty sure most are up on ebay. Parts for the calipers to have them overhauled would not be hard to get either.
