Well as I say Graham at daf classics has put a new clutch in it and set the transmission up.
He says it’s working as it should.

well the test is drive fairly gently and give as little throttle as it needs to just accelerate slowly as you pass through 30 mph and up to 40 the engine rpm should die way as it changes into overdrive ratio ..
