Stupid..stupid ..stuuupid

Embarrassingly for me... :blush: after receiving my new brake push rod I decided it didn't fit and required fettling. :suspect: :nod: ....

So I cut a bit off the end with my trusty hacksaw :? only to find that the rod hadn't located properly at my first attempt :shock: and the actual size required was the size sent! :doh:

Back to the drawing board and another 13squid..or I'll probably make my own this time so I can really mess this up! :angry:

Good news....kinda got a get out of jail free card....wasn't a mistake after all..rejigged a couple of bits and hey presto it worked fine! :thumbsup:

Now bleeding the bleeding thing was a different matter. :x
Big Thankyou to all the post regarding bleeding up the rear caliper...what a mission. ..thought I was going mental! :happyhappy:
Ended up removing the caliper and placing it on my seat....right pain but did the job. Still having a little trouble as it's still a little weak for my tastes....may try a power bleeder at some point! :dance:
Hoping for an MOT this week....
