    Do you mean a Clutch Delay Valve - with the "delay" removed?

    A while a go I found a few US suppliers, but I'd like to find a UK supplier too.

    sorted, just undo the flexi hose to the valve, then undo the metal hose from the valve, take valve out, screw steel pipe into flexi and it works fine. much better gearchange at high revs.
    takes about ten mins to do.

    you will see it, follow the steel pipe to the bracket, this is where it meets the flexi hose, you will see the valve its about 1" long just remove it, realy simple, when you see it you will know what to do! when removed just screw steel pipe directly into flexi.
