I am on my way to the gathering at Namboida and I have broken down at Lauriton. My clutch master cylinder has packed it in.I have replaced it and now having trouble bleeding it. The slave cylinder is the original plastic one, it has a bleed screw not a nipple, can anyone help.
Cheers Peter

Peter
I am 20 mins away.
I have a spare plastic slave cylinder. It too has a bleed screw, not a nipple. I don't think a nipple will work in these as there is a hole in the base of the protrusion that the screw fits into, to bleed the air out of the cylinder.
I am going to Port Macquarie this morning and can swing by the way if you want.

They made it to the get together and left on wednesday leading a convoy to look at the Oka that has been parked up near Dorrigo for the last couple of years. Haven't heard anything since ;-))

We have made it home.
Many thanks to Peter Fox for his help and hospitality.
We still made it to the gathering only a day later then planned.
The rest of the trip did not go without incident . About 4pm Friday we pulled up outside the Wollombi Pub and could smell diesel, looked under the truck to find fuel running down from the engine. What had happened was the spill line had fractured at the banjo fitting on the injector pump. I pulled it out and then went over to the pub which had a few tradies having a drink to see if any of them had a oxy set. They put me in contact with Dennis who lived about 15 km out of town, he came in and we had it fixed in no time. When refitting the spill line I notice the injector pump was loss and 2 of the stud holding it on the timing cover were broken. I made a band-aid repair with some cockies cotton and a screw driver hoping this will last for the 125 km trip home.
As it was getting late, the beer was smelling good and there was a good free camp area behind the pub we decided to stay the night.
Got up in the morning and headed off, continually checking the band-aid. We got less than 1 km from home when the spill pipe fractured again, so we just kept on driving to home.
Has anyone had this problem before, and if so, what has caused it .
Cheers Peter.

Peter I'd imagine that the pump being loose would be the main cause, metal pipes don't really like constant flexing. It wouldn't be doing the injector lines much good either.
We're still on the road, made it as far as Coffs tonight but would rather be back up around Ebor it was much cooler and less humid up there.er

Peter, sounds like the pump has been out at some time and not replaced properly. They are very difficult to remove and refit.

You might find something of interest in my notes here when I removed the pump to fix an O-ring leak in 2012.

Last year I had the pump overhauled and did the whole removal/refitting job again. Access to the bottom fixing bolt is the real challenge, I had to make up a special tool something like this:

The last trip we did with the Perkins before the Cummins the same thing happened, we fixed the broken pipe just to have it fail a 1000 km's later. I ended up putting a flex in. I haven't noticed the pump being loose.

Thanks Dave. I got the pump out yesterday, didn't have any problem once I got the hydraulic pump out. I didn't even have to make up a spanner, because the third stud at the bottom was shear off as well. The bolt holding the bracket at the back of the pump to the block was also missing and I think this is what has caused the studs to fail. I will be keeping a close eye on them in the future.
Cheers Peter
