Keith, I am 99% they used a LUK clutch, which from when I was on the spanners is a very trusted make.
They did bleed the clutch as described on the fitting instructions that came with the Rover master cylinder , I believe it was connect everything up, pump the clutch twice then open nipple and pump twice only and to there credit it was very light and didn't feel bad at all. But having drove round for a couple of days the biting point seemed very close to the floor than it was before. But as they hadn't drove it before they weren't to know.
Anyway, bled the clutch as described elesewhere (used a syringe from an ink refill kit, Perfect for the job) Topped up pot, pumped twice slowly by hand with the nipple open, shut nipple and the biting point was perfect again.
Pedal is like a petrol car again ie, very very light slightly unnerving in fact till I got used to it, made me realise how poorly the old slave must have been!!!!
