Thanks Eric,

Worth a try. It's certainly much better than before. The cluth would engage 
by itself while parking etc, so at least now I can control the car more 
effectively. I'll try one more bleeding session with a self bleeder and 
double check my adjustments. It's pretty good now, I'm just worried about 
reliablity of the unit for the future.
