[ROVERNET - UK] Clutch Slave cylinder stuff

First off,

Happy New Year to everyone!

Secondly: help!

I have a ''68 2000 TC and I'm having trouble changing gear. What's happening 
is the clutch isn't fully disengaged at the end of the pedal travel. The 
previous owner had had a garage rebuild the hydrolics on both the clutch and 
brakes(I'll ask about that in the future.:-).) and I'm fortunenate enough to 
have the invioce for the work carried out with the slave cylinder used for 

So I think there are three points I'm dealing with.

1] The cylinder they used is for a MG midget 7/8" which I have to admit 
looks pretty similar, is this usable?

2] The external release lever is at about 10-12 degrees off the vertical 
instead of the 5 degrees spec'ed in the manual. My guess is because the 
pushrod to the cylinder piston is at the maximum adjustment on the threaded 
end by the yoke. Will this stop full travel of the release lever?

3] Assuming that the Midget cylinder should work fine, have I missed 
something with bleeding the system?

Hope someone can help me with this.

Many thanks,

Steven Dibdin.
