With the fork handle, sorry got mixed up with four candles.

Whoops, Lets start again with my sensible hat on.

With the fork that far back it normally indicates a thin pressure plate, its either that or the release bearing is seized and jammed  forward which would push the arm back. I would go for something seized 
 
All the best Clive

With the slave extended with about 6mm guess left of out travel the rod is just touching the fork..sort of rattle fit which made me question the fork...i think the clutch has gone in and stayed there followed by the slave giving up...the pressure plate is then not returning the slave and fluid back to master..only nuts n bolts... better get the box off me thinks..
Thanks Clive.

Shame you have to take the box off Jon, but it'll be interesting to see what you find in there. Kimi 2 had the snapped fork and release bearing rusted to the guide collar. A right mess, but relatively easy to sort out.

Good plan Jon, you need to get out and enjoy your other cars whilst the weather's good. This one will be fine, tucked up in a dry garage  :13:

Where the wheels on s3 diamond cut originally? 4 x114.3 pcd

Some countries had them diamond cut. A lot of work to keep them looking good though. Most had them treated and sealed.  Diamond cut looks good though.

S3 pcd is 4x114.3
1985 Series 3 TWR
