OK times for today

Josh 50.57
Me 52.26

Good day weather wise, sunny and warmish all day allowing some good times .

Car went well although its still loosing a tiny amount of brake fluid from around the MC despite a new one being fitted and I still have coolant loss despite a new expansion tank cap. We think tank is worn at the neck and is not sealing well :? (see wanted section for new tank request.

When I fitted the new MC's the other day I cut the rods to both MC'c shorter to allow the clevis pins to clear the bulk heaad which they now do nicely. I set the bias bar to 50/50 and we had no lock ups today so all seems well.
